First thank you, families, for passing Measure C. All of the new things at Soquel Elementary wouldn’t be happening without that support. I am sure you have seen all the trucks, dirt and new and old equipment coming and going. It has been a jam-packed summer on the Soquel Campus. We have a new playground ready for our Cougars to try out and explore. A pad has been laid for our interim portables (the acting portables are due to be here in October or November). New asphalt for our temporary basketball courts and a new wall ball will be installed very shortly. I am so excited to have all the new classrooms in the coming years, but that does mean we will have a bit of construction throughout the year. I will do my very best to keep you updated on the construction projects. If at any point you have questions or concerns, please let me know. I will do my best to answer them or find out from the district office. Please know that construction can be hard, but the final product is always AMAZING!!!
I will try to keep this page updated with the latest news on our projects. I will also make sure to have the district construction information here.
FAQ- Here are a few commonly asked questions that have been coming up that I thought I would answer.
- Are the construction workers finger printed?- The safety of our students always is priority number one in SUESD. With the passage of Measure C, construction on our school sites will soon become a reality. Even though much of this construction will take place during summer and other breaks, there will be times when construction occurs while school is in session. As part of the requirements to bid on our jobs, contractors will be required to have all of their employees fingerprinted or continually supervised by someone who is. California Education Code 45125.2 also requires entities providing construction services to the district, where the employees of the construction company will have contact with pupils, to ensure the safety of students by the installation of a physical barrier at the worksite. Each employee will also be provided a picture identification card.
