Jarvis proclaims schools almost ready for August
The Elbert County school system is on the verge of being ready when schools re-open Aug. 7, according to system Facilities Director Jon Jarvis.
At an Elbert County School Board work session Monday Jarvis said a lot of summer time projects are going to be completed soon.
A lot of the projects are related to security, with camera systems being installed at Blackwell and Elbert Elementary. A security wall has been installed at the Elbert County Middle School, and Elbert Elementary had extensive HVAC work over the summer.
Also at the Elbert County Middle School there has been extensive work done on flooring in the school.
When the cameras are completely installed, the cameras will tie into security monitors at the Elbert County EMA and Security Director Shayne Bennett’s office.
