    Eagle Update

    Farwell Area Schools
    October 2020 Update on the Bond Projects 

    Read the Full Report HERE

    Here are some highlights -

    On Monday, October 12, 2020, the Farwell Area Schools broke ground for the New Wing of the Elementary School.

    Breaking Ground FES

    This project will set the stage for a busy summer of construction in 2021. The goal is to have the new wing enclosed before the onset of winter allowing construction to continue through the winter. Once the new addition is completed, then the demolition of the 1949 Teachout Wing will begin. With the exception of the new roofs and track, much of this summer’s work was only visible from the inside of our schools.

    We are looking forward to the operational savings and reliability that our new boilers in Elementary and High School will provide the district. 

     New Boilers 2020

     

    Major projects completed in the summer of 2020 include:

    • Replaced boilers in High School and Elementary School
    • Replace HVAC units and control systems in Middle School and High School have been completed.
    • Replace old and leaking sections of roof in High School and Middle School
    • Track repairs and replacement at athletic complex.
    • New fencing for the athletic complex is still scheduled for this fall.
