While the start of the 2016-17 school year is over a month away, there will be plenty of upcoming activity at the Whitehall Schools with two major projects scheduled in the next two weeks.

According to Whitehall Superintendent John Sullivan, construction is expected to begin next week on the two school parking lots. Sullivan said they would be chip sealing the lots. He said work would also be done to improve a drainage problem in the parking lot closest to the elementary school.

Sullivan said those who need to go to the school could park either directly in front of the elementary school or in the area next to the Whitehall Community Pool.

Sullivan is hopeful work will begin the following week to replace the heaters on the high school roof. Earlier this year the Whitehall School Board of Trustees approved a contract for McLees Incorporated of Bozeman to replace 11 heaters for a cost of $161,190.

Last week, Sullivan and other district employees spent time repairing the middle tennis court.

Sullivan said the court had a lot of wide cracks and led to unsafe playing conditions. Because hiring someone to fix the court is expensive, Sullivan worked on the project in-house with Garrett Briggs, Kathy Coughliln, Kayden Smith and Julie Kieckbusch.
