Bond Committee shows off failing science building

HIGH SCHOOL Science Teacher Dave Hopcia shows a small group Thursday where the emergency shut-off valve is in the Science Building. He told the group having to use a tool to shut the gas off simply isn’t safe.
SUPERINTENDENT Scott Cooper shows the steel bars, attached to a steel plate on the inside, which are holding the walls together in the Science Building. The walls were not properly joined, he said, and as a result the building is held together with the steel plates and is shifting, causing the roof to leak badly.
THE BACK of the Science Building shows cracks in the walls and a separation of the sidewalk from the foundation. If 3C passes, school officials will build new science and vocational classrooms and tear down this building.
IF 3C passes, a connection and classrooms will be build from this end of the elementary school, to the lunch area/library/computer room.
DOLORES HIGH SCHOOL Principal Brandon Thurston stands inside the shop building and points out a water leak. During heavy rains, water cascades over the door near the electrical supply, he said.
