"It's been a wild week," Polito said in an email Jan. 10. "Our modernization contractor XL and insurance subcontractor Balfour have done an amazing job moving classrooms and repairing spaces in an incredibly short turn-around time."
Polito said that with their help, students and staff were able to return to school after winter break as planned on Monday, Jan. 9. "A big shout-out to our site and district staff who lived and breathed this project for the last seven days," she added.
Some classrooms part of construction project
January 2020 marked the end of about five years of construction of new buildings at the K-3 school of the Las Lomitas School District.
The projects were funded through Measure S, a $60 million bond measure passed by voters in 2013 for repairs, upgrades and construction projects. Half of those funds were allocated for projects at Las Lomitas.
