2015-16 Levy Projects

2015-16 Capital Levy Project Summary:

LMS Student Furniture

Most of the student furnishings at Langley Middle School date to the 1980s and 90s. New furniture was purchased for about half of the classrooms. The new furniture provides much more flexibility for teachers, looks great and is more durable. Feedback from students and staff has been great.

Elementary Playground Equipment

This new playground equipment was chosen for its variety of components that will help with strength, balance and endurance exercises. Several years ago we expanded our PE program to include a 45 minute daily period where students are outside participating in the PE program. This equipment will allow the PE instructor to incorporate specific strength, muscle endurance, and cardiovascular workouts.

LMS Readerboard

The old LMS readerboard was replaced by a new readerboard. It is closer to the main entrance, is easier to use and looks great.

Elementary School Flooring and Hallway Painting

The hallway carpeting at the elementary school has been in poor shape for years. Our new flooring replaced the carpeting with hard rubber flooring and larger carpeted walk-off areas near entrances. It also included a logo in the main entry area.

In addition to new flooring, the hallways were painted last summer and new tag board installed on the walls.  The new hallway colors are bright, colorful and have given the school a whole new look that students, parents and staff are excited about.

High School Backstop Replacements

The existing baseball backstop was damaged in a windstorm in 2015. Some of the original structural elements were sub-standard. Similar problems were found at the fastpitch backstop. Both were replaced with heavier and taller structures with heavier fabric.

Elementary School Fire Monitoring System

Our original fire monitoring system dated back to 1988. It began having problems in fall of 2015 and was replaced that winter with a new system. Our new monitoring system is compatible with current fire code requirements and has been working great.

High School Tennis Court Resurfacing

The high school has 7 tennis courts. All were in need of resurfacing. The concrete courts in particular had serious cracking to address. One of the asphalt courts will need work on the base before resurfacing can be done. This project repaired and resurfaced the 5 north courts and included new netting. We also adopted the new color scheme used today in tennis.

Elementary School Heat Pump Replacement - Phase II

The first phase of heat pump replacements was completed last winter.  Last summer (2016) an additional 15 units were replaced.  The new units provide greater efficiency, are quieter and control the indoor temperature and CO2 levels very well.  This project completed the south end of the school.   The remaining old units on the north side of the school will be replaced in a future project.

One heat pump at the primary school campus was also replaced after failing last spring 2016.

Fence Safety Cap

The district installed approximately 2,000 feet of safety cap on fences at the elementary and high school sites. This cap reduces safety risks to our students and keeps us in compliance with health department safety recommendations.

Garden Program Irrigation and Water System

The garden program needed a permanent solution to their watering needs at the south campus site. The district installed a permanent, buried frost-free watering system for the garden. It is used for irrigation and for washing the harvest.

Floor Maintenance Equipment

A new floor machine was purchased for the high school. The old machine was transferred to the elementary site for use on their new hallway floors. The new machine is faster, works better on edges and helps the HS staff with their large amount of hard floor maintenance.
