USD 428 schedules summer season upkeep

Great Bend USD 428 has prepared its list of summer maintenance projects, but replacing the air handler at Lincoln Elementary School may have to wait because of supply chain issues, Superintendent Khris Thexton said.

A rooftop unit was ordered in October but it hasn’t come in yet, so that project may be moved to 2023.

The gym floors at Jefferson and Lincoln elementary schools are scheduled for repair and refinishing but Thexton said the district has been struggling to get bids.

The superintendent presented the project list at last Monday’s board of education meeting. The list was developed with input from Maintenance and Custodians Director Dirk Davis.

There’s also a shorter list from Grounds and Transportation Director Cody Schmidt, that includes replacing a parking lot on the north side of Great Bend High School, sidewalk repairs as needed, and replacing old fencing around Lincoln and Jefferson schools.

In addition to that, Thexton said he and Ryan Axman, the district’s director of technology, have been working with Nex-Tech on looking into adding keyless entry systems at some buildings.

The summer project list at all buildings includes mowing and landscaping, as well as:

• Preventative maintenance on all rooftop units for heating, ventilation and air conditioning and exhaust fans, replacing items as needed

• Inspect and repair roofs, gutters and downspouts, seal leaking seams and remove debris

• Interior deep cleaning, shampoo carpets, wax floors, etc.
