This summer, Sibley will be undergoing a Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) upgrade. Because of this project, Sibley students will be having their last day of school on June 5th. Hopefully, this will help you plan accordingly for your student and family. Getting out a day early is the same schedule followed last year at Hawthorne, as they were one of the first schools to receive this system upgrade. At this time, Sibley is the only school scheduled for this work this summer.
What will all this mean? Having a new system will further increase the indoor air quality in the building as handlers will move more outside air throughout. Most ceilings will be lowered slightly to adapt new ductwork for us. Newer controls will allow the building to have a more evenly regulated temperature than is currently the case. We will also be having a dehumidification system installed. A dehumidification system will allow us to be more comfortable on days when heat and high humidity are factors.
We are excited to have this work done and for what it will mean next school year. If you have questions about any of this information, please do not hesitate to give us a call. Although office staff will be relocated to Hawthorne during this work, you can still reach us at 379-5080.
