Boilers and water heater installation

 A warm reliable learning environment for all students was the goal for Dayton School Board members when they asked voters to support a Capital Project levy in February of 2018. As the warm fall temperatures turn to winter frost and snow the heating system has indeed been upgraded. Reliable units in the Ag Science building and the Wood shop as well as a new main boiler for heating the high school and elementary are near completion. Superintendent Johnson noted that only a few remaining loose ends are all that remain before checking the project off as completed. The project had complications beginning with accessing the basement in the elementary where the main boilers are located. A hole in the wall had to be cut and workmen had to devise a pulley and forklift system to remove the old unit and set the new boiler in place. All that remains is the installation of a permanent door for accessing the space. With the new boilers in place the District will next focus its attention on upgrading to electronic controls and replacing some aging classroom units. The District wishes to thank the voters for their support of the project.
