Baldwyn Schools’ maintenance and custodial staff are continuing to prepare the grounds of Baldwyn Elementary, Middle, and High Schools in preparation for the 2017-18 school session.
“We believe that a neat appearance of all campuses is a major component of developing a positive culture that is conducive to the learning environment our students need to succeed,” Superintendent Jason McKay said.
Traditional repairs and finishings, such as landscaping work, painting, waxing of floors, and more have been completed at each campus. Additional concreted areas at BHS and BMS were constructed for more student and visitor gathering space as well as less upkeep of grounds. BES students will see playground relocation along with a safety fence being installed.
“The Baldwyn community has a standard of excellence, and as a district we want to make sure our appearance is meeting those standards,” McKay added.
No summer break
Mike Underwood and Dean Warren have led the summer work session in the repairs, additions, and grounds upkeep.
“We work hard every summer with making sure our buses, buildings, classrooms, and outdoor settings are safe for students and staff. We also make sure that all equipment and mechanisms are in working order for a smoother and more productive environment for our students and staff,” Underwood said.
Currently, repairs and construction of school properties are still in progress. If visiting the campuses for pre-registration, please watch for construction areas. The BHS Vocational Education facility is also still under construction. The facility is not expected to be open for use until late fall. For more information call Central Office at 365-1000.
