Construction Update November 2020

 Long overdue update and many developments have taken place:   
Sharpsburg’s upgrades began in the summer of 2019 and were mostly completed during the 2019-2020 school year. From the outside observer, this was the most noticeable. Modular classrooms (trailers) were installed on the primary playground to house students from the primary building while their building was upgraded. The primary building is rather “new” so construction was quickly completed by November and students moved back in to their freshly updated classrooms. That’s when the elementary students moved into the modular. The elementary got quite an exciting facelift. Gone are the old glassblock windows around the entire building.

Construction Update September, 2019

Construction at Sharpsburg Primary is moving along.  The work by Century Construction continues to be on schedule and progressing forward.  New water piping has been installed, the new roof is nearing completion and the new transformers to power the new air conditioning/heater units has been completed by Duke Energy.  The second floor of the primary is taking shape quite nicely with the installation of energy efficient lighting, along with installation of the ceiling framing and tiles.  All ductwork is complete on the second floor and the painter is already on site, which is always a great sign of progress during any construction/remodel.  Sharpsburg is grateful for the tremendous work occurring in the primary and very appreciative of everyone’s patience and understanding.

Construction Update July & August 2019

Construction is coming to a close at NMS.  We still have a long punch list, cleaning up and much branding to do as well as preparing the east wing for 6th graders next year.  We do intend to have an open house.   We want to wait to see how much progress is made this month in hopes of a grand opening this fall.  
Construction at Sharpsburg Primary is also going along nicely.  We are on schedule.  The week of August 22nd we received permits for the modulars after appealing for variance from the state board of appeals.  We are working to prepare modulars for the start of preschool and will slowly move over grades K-2 as the modulars are prepared and prepped by teachers.  Parents will get to walk thru the modular where their child learns when we host an open house.  We are anxious to get students and teachers into the modulars.  We do not have a date for occupancy yet.
Thank you for your patience.

Sharpsburg Primary and Elementary
-Plans are underway to prepare for modulars to be placed on the grounds of Sharpsburg Primary.  Modulars will provide a cool as well as warm learning environment while construction is taking place at the primary.  As modulars are set up teachers will be able to move items into the space over time.  
-Our notice to bid for the Primary and Elementary Construction project was placed in the Cincinnati Enquirer.
