Board to Vote on Funds for Four Elementary School Renovations

Four elementary school buildings will see a revamp of their HVAC systems, thanks to Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds totaling $16,859,566. 

Algonkian Elementary School and Cool Spring Elementary School will undergo the renovations in summer of 2023, while Ashburn Elementary School and Balls Bluff Elementary School will undergo renovations in 2024.

The federal funds require a 100% local match. The School Board is expected to approve the plans as part of its consent agenda during today’s board meeting.

    This sounds like a worthwhile project. I just hope there aren’t too many strings attached with the federal funds. That gets some Loudoun parents nervous. Here’s hoping tonight’s board meeting goes smoothly. It’s been almost a year since Mr. Michon did his thing at an LCSB meeeting. What a roller-coaster ride it’s been since then. Good Luck Loudoun!

    It would help to know why they selected those 4 schools.

    I hope expansion and increased spacing techniques are considered and not just an HVAC upgrade.

    Hope to see the upgrades and retrofits to the HVAC systems that will provide the safe UV-C sanitization and disinfection for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in our schools with the net result of not only a germ-free enviroment, but a reduction in maintenance and cleaning costs and increased energy savings, leading to a 2-3 year ROI on the UV-C system; an easy retrofit add-on to both new and existing HVAC systems. Not only would we be able to mitigate the risk of acquiring a Covid-19 infection, these products will kill the Covid virus, including the Delata and Omicron variants, Legionella and all bacteria, spores and mold, including all pathogens. There are no known pathogens resistant to a lethal dose of UV-C energy…None.
