Building Improvements

by Robert Bruchak on September 25, 2016

summer2016Salisbury Township School District has continued to improve the buildings and infrastructure of the district. Students learn better in buildings that are functional and well-maintained.  Keeping the buildings and infrastructure properly maintained is also a safer environment for the students and the community.  The district buildings and infrastructure are assets of the taxpayers that need to be properly maintained.

This past summer the district replaced the air handler system (HVAC) unit at Harry S Truman Elementary School.  This was an energy project that will make the building more efficient and help lower energy costs for the district.  All the concrete sidewalks on Salisbury Rd. and Gaskill Ave. were repaired and/or replaced.  Western Salisbury Elementary School had the whole area in front and around the building redesigned and resurfaced with asphalt.  This will make for a safer and more efficient drop off and pick up zone for the students.  There was also asphalt work performed at Harry S Truman and the Administration building.  The high school had a new scoreboard installed at the football stadium.  Other projects completed this past summer included the following:
