Robo-calls were made to the students' homes on 8/31. I know the website had the same announcement on 9/1. Not bad,...considering it is Ringgold.

Excellent point; this should be asked at the next board meeting. Knowing Ringgold, they probably didn't have a penalty phase dialed into the contract. Besides, at the August meeting, the Board said they were going to "stop the rumors" about the start of school being delayed, an swore up and down that school was going to start on time. Wrong again. One gentleman in the audience spoke about the scheduled completion, and how the district needed to pay attention to details. Does anyone know if there is a construction management (CM) firm overseeing the contractor(s) work? A progress report should have been provided by the CM firm prior to the Board meeting indicating whether the project was going to be completed on time or not. I think the Board members told people what they wanted hear.

As does DEC,couldn't turn it into office space as it wasn't "up to code", but it was fine as a school.
Was up at the site by Giant Eagle today and paveing, wiring,and A/C isn't completed. Pretty hot in the caf.
Over heard a few workers mention "see ya monday". Not much of a "push for completion".
Are they planning on leaving the gravel as a base for the play ground?
