Potential Repairs for Hamilton School District

Hamilton, IL – The Hamilton School District will need to make some repairs to several of its buildings in the near future. Superintendent Steve Breckon says an architect recently completed a safety report for the High School and Middle School. He says the survey is done every 10 years to make sure school buildings are up to code in life-safety areas. Some of the areas the district must address within the next year include adding heat detectors and fire extinguishers and changing exit signs. The district would have more time for projects such as repairing a roof, replacing carpet, and adding fire doors. Breckon says the board has reviewed the initial draft of the study and will approve it at its meeting in December. He says the final costs for all of the projects will also be available then.
