Summer Projects 2018
The school board approved the temporary use of existing funds in order to start projects ahead of the first levy collection. The approved funds were allocated from the district's fund balance and will be replaced upon receipt of the April 2019 levy collection. This allowed the district to complete projects ahead of schedule; which provided technology, security and safety/comfort projects that were desperately needed.
Our maintenance, grounds and technology teams along with contractors, have had a very busy summer getting a head start on some of the many projects planned over the next four years. Security enhancements have been made, roofs have been repaired, fields have been updated, and so much more.
Safety & Security
Security access upgrades are being completed at our elementary schools. This includes entry re-configurations at Vinland and Gordon Elementary Schools. All elementary schools will have video doorbells and access control by the end of October.
Vinland Elementary was taken off of septic system and connected to city sewer.
The walk-in cooler for the NKSD central kitchen, located at Poulsbo Middle School, was replaced following a system failure.
Additionally, upgrades were made to the HVAC controls at Poulsbo Elementary. This upgrade improves the reliability of system and allows for more efficient operation.
At Kingston High School the turf field was replaced and is ready for use by fall sports teams.
At North Kitsap High School baseball fields drainage was improved, which will significantly reduce standing water on the field.
Suquamish Elementary will have a new playground installed in October.
