Dear Central Families and Community Members,

I am delighted to provide you with the latest update on the progress of our ongoing construction efforts at Central Public Schools. The dedication and patience you have shown have been crucial to reaching the exciting milestones we are thrilled to share with you today.

Our new additions are progressing exceptionally well, and I am pleased to report the new gym, wrestling room, weight room, and locker rooms are now fully enclosed. This achievement is a testament to the hard work of our construction crews and the commitment to delivering top-notch facilities for our students.

As we transition into the colder months, rest assured that temporary heating solutions are in place for these areas to ensure an environment for both the construction crews to keep pushing. The crews will be working diligently on interior finishes throughout the winter, with a targeted completion date in the spring.

Mr. Kley, in collaboration with vendors, has already initiated the process of furnishing these new spaces with the appropriate equipment. His proactive efforts include working within lead times to ensure that the areas are fully equipped and ready for use.

In other significant updates, the final concrete work is set to be completed within the next two weeks, marking another crucial step forward in the construction process. Simultaneously, the roofs on the new additions are nearing their final inspections, bringing us closer to achieving the structural completion of these essential components.

In the front of the building, our new entrance is nearing completion. We anticipate having this entrance ready for use for students after Thanksgiving. This development is a major stride toward enhancing the overall functionality and accessibility of our school.

The collaborative effort between our construction teams, school leadership, and dedicated staff has been instrumental in reaching these milestones. We recognize that your continued support and understanding have been vital throughout this journey, and we are truly grateful for the community's resilience. As we look forward to the completion of these additions, we are filled with anticipation for the positive impact they will have on the educational experience of our students. We remain committed to providing you with regular updates on the progress, and we are confident that the final results will exceed expectations.

If you have any immediate questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to Tim Schochenmaier at Your engagement and partnership are integral to the success of this project, and we appreciate your ongoing support.

Thank you for your continued patience and enthusiasm as we work towards creating a learning environment that reflects the excellence of Central Public Schools.

With gratitude,
Tim Schochenmaier
