PLAYING IN THE DIRT – The Big Rock Elementary School playground is moving to make room for the school’s expansion. Over the past week, contractors have been working to dismantle the large playscape, which will be rebuilt further east of the school. According to Principal Jan Krause, the playground will be built on an island since the ground in that area tends to be wet. Bri-Car Roofing & Sheet Metal Inc. of Auburn won the bid for re-roofing school. They are expected to re-roof the existing school over the next three weeks. Meanwhile, Chesaning Union Schools are accepting bids for the actual expansion of Big Rock, providing more classrooms. Krause hopes that the bidding process goes smoothly, since he is anxious to get the construction going. He explained that during the construction, the south and east doors will be blocked. “We’ll have to re-route the kids for recess and everything,” Krause said. “We have new fire escape plans too,” he added, “I’m looking forward to this.” Once the expansion is complete, students from Albee, Big Rock and Brady elementary schools will be merged together to form one school.
