    Valley Point Middle School Parents and Staff,

    I would like to take this opportunity to update you on the status of the temporary driveway that enters the VPMS campus from Old Field Road. Over the last several weeks, we have received several complaints about the condition of the driveway. Although the construction contractor has made every effort to repeatedly grade the drive as potholes develop, it has proven to be a futile effort. This is especially true given the extremely wet weather we have experienced in recent months.

    Our Facilities Department has enlisted the help of the school system’s architect and geo-technical engineering firm to find a cost-effective solution that will improve and maintain the driveway in an acceptable condition for the next eighteen months. I am happy to report that while students are out next week on Thanksgiving break, contractors will be re-grading the driveway and installing a surface stabilization compound designed to harden the current gravel surface into a solid form. Our geo-technical engineer advises us that this compound will prevent the driveway from washing out or developing potholes in the future.

    As a reminder, this is a temporary driveway and not intended to be a public road. For the safety of everyone involved, we ask that all motorists adhere to a 10 mph speed limit. Thank you very much for your patience and understanding while we work to build a great new facility for the awesome students, staff, and community of Valley Point Middle School.  

     

    Sincerely,

    Mike Ewton
    Assistant Superintendent for Operations

    Estimados Padres y personal de la Escuela Secundaria Valley Point:

    Me gustaría aprovechar esta oportunidad para informarle sobre el estado del camino de entrada temporal para ingresar al campus de VPMS desde Old Field Road. Durante las últimas semanas, hemos recibido varias quejas sobre la condición del camino de acceso. Aunque el contratista de la construcción ha hecho todos los esfuerzos para que el camino este en buenas condiciones se siguen haciendo baches y es un esfuerzo inútil. Esto es especialmente cierto dado el clima extremadamente húmedo que hemos experimentado en los últimos meses.

    Nuestro Departamento de Instalaciones ha solicitado la ayuda del arquitecto del sistema escolar y la firma de ingeniería geotécnica para encontrar una solución rentable que mejore y mantenga el camino de entrada en condiciones aceptables durante los próximos dieciocho meses. Me complace informar que mientras los estudiantes estén la próxima semana en el receso de Acción de Gracias, los contratistas volverán a arreglar el camino de entrada e instalarán un compuesto de estabilización de superficie diseñado para endurecer la superficie de grava actual en una forma sólida. Nuestro ingeniero geotécnico nos aconseja que este compuesto evitará que el camino de entrada se humedezca o desarrolle baches en el futuro.

    Como recordatorio, este es un camino temporal y no pretende ser una vía pública. Para la seguridad de todos los involucrados, pedimos que todos los conductores se adhieran a un límite de velocidad de 10 mph. Muchas gracias por su paciencia y comprensión mientras trabajamos para construir una gran instalación nueva para nuestros increíbles estudiantes, el personal y la comunidad de la Escuela Secundaria Valley Point.

     

    Sinceramente,

    Mike Ewton
    Asistente del Superintendente de Operaciones
