Please pardon our dust.
Lincoln Jr. High School has been under construction for several months and has been delayed due to approval from the State Architect's Office and power upgrade issues. These delays have caused the District to install industrial evaporative coolers in Lincoln classrooms to help with cooling and ventilation. With the weather conditions of high humidity and heat the coolers are not effective. Maintenance staff is turning the coolers on before students arrive in the morning and checking the water levels every two to three hours and replenishing water as needed.
The students at Lincoln are on a modified school day which will end at 12:37 p.m. every day through August 30, 2013. The District will continue to evaluate the conditions and make adjustments to the schedule as needed.
The District is in the process of installing new HVAC (heating and air conditioning) units to replace the old evaporative cooling system at Lincoln and upgrade the power coming into Lincoln through Pacific Gas and Electric. The power upgrade is scheduled to be done on September 14, 2013 with P G & E. and completed air conditioning unit installations should start operating beginning on September 16, 2013.
Below are some pictures of that show the progress that has already been made.
