The Riverview School District is finishing up projects as it prepares for the first day of school on Aug. 27.

“As the district strives to use preventative maintenance, protect our investment, gain efficiency and meet safety needs, we’ve been working hard this summer to complete necessary and important capital improvement projects,” said Margaret DiNinno, the district’s superintendent.

Projects worked on during the summer months included adding ballistic films to windows throughout the district, replacing an elevator at the senior and junior high school building, constructing a wrap-around driveway at the senior and junior high school building and repairing concrete walkways.

There were several upgrades done at the 10th Street and Verner elementary school buildings, including installing new carpet, updating the fire and public announcement systems, painting classrooms and replacing network wiring, among other upgrades.

Central administration has returned to its original office on 10th Street in Oakmont after setting up a temporary office location as repairs were made.

Business Manager Tammy Good said the district was issued a $7 million bond three years ago to address some maintenance projects.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
