Evident Progress Made on New School

Crane Placing Gym Walls.jpgA milestone was reached in the construction of Hinton’s new elementary school. The precast panels that form the wall system of the gymnasium were set in place.  The sub-contractor brought in a large crane to accomplish this task.  It took three large flatbeds to convey the crane to the construction site.  The crane was erected Tuesday night.  The work of installing panels began the morning of September 22nd. The hydro seeding work has progressed nicely, and the community is seeing green grass on the extensive slopes after a summer of perplexing rains.

The project as a whole is proceeding pretty much on schedule.  The intent has always been to have the building completely enclosed by the end of November in order to facilitate subcontractors being able to work throughout the winter.  That target still appears to be realistic, and as a result it still is realistic to expect that the new school will be “on line” for occupancy by August of next year.


Access to Present School To Be Impeded Soon (For 2-3 days)

The City of Hinton has been laying a new water main along the Titan Road for the past couple of weeks.  That work will soon extend west for two blocks along Grover Street, and then north along Second Avenue where it will eventually cross W. Grand and the connect to existing lines at W. Main.  Traffic flow in and out of the main entrance to the Hinton School may be disrupted for two to three days, most likely sometime the week of October 4.  When that occurs, all traffic will have to use the access off C-60.  We will attempt to provide a special bulletin when this appears imminent.  This will require patience, but the work the City is doing is unavoidable.

Fall Concert

The music students are busily preparing for their first concert of the year.  It will be held on Monday, October 25 at 7:00 p.m. in the Hinton gym.  The concert will feature the 7th-8th grade chorus, 7th-8th grade band and the high school chorus and band.  Admission is $3.00 for adults and $2.00 for students.  Come and enjoy a night of great music!
