Due to delays in our permitting process the preschool will remain in their existing classrooms for the summer session, July 9-27.
We have just now received results of California Water Company’s flow test (after nine weeks!) so that Del Amo Construction can resubmit our Fire Prevention plan. This should lead to a building permit being issued so that work can continue on the six temporary classrooms including decking, power, plumbing and installation of cabinetry. In the meantime we are working the phones and wifi for the classrooms.
Bennett Landscape is rerouting irrigation supply lines and preparing a site for a portable storage unit as you enter the campus. Room 7 of building B will not used for classes this summer and will be used for storing boxes already packed. This is the closest room to the portable storage unit which is great. We will vacate the preschool buildings as soon as the summer session is over. A demolition subcontractor has been selected so we’re ready to go.

We’re underway! The 60′ modulars arrived on campus at 4:15 AM Monday morning. By 4:45 AM the first was already positioned and jacked up so that the low-boy flatbed could pull out. The second portable was moved in and by 5:30 AM the trucks were gone, the school bus drove out and the swimmers were arriving at Country Day School. The crew positioned the modulars, lowered them onto their supports and tied them together.
Four remaining modulars were delivered early this morning in one hour, 4:15 – 5:15 AM, and the Country Day School parking lot was restored (parking stops reinstalled) by 6:00 AM! Fencing will be installed tomorrow. Packing boxes are due to arrive at the church today. Still on schedule!

Preparations have begun for the June 4th arrival of portable classroom trailers. Three units will be placed, for the time of construction, in the “new” parking lot, between the sanctuary and the exit driveway. Once the trailers arrive it will take about a month before they are ready for occupancy. Only after they have been inspected and approved, and licensed by the state for use by preschool children, will the demolition of the existing buildings begin. We will be sharing more information on the website as the project gets underway and sending out email blast updates as well.
