Rhinebeck Central School District's Capital Project Winds Down "Summer 2019" Phase of Voter-Approved Capital Project Work

The Rhinebeck Central School District's Capital Project, in the amount of $12,089,160 as approved by the voters in December 2016 by a two-to-one margin, is winding down it's "Summer 2019" phase of construction as the 2019-20 school year has begun.

Some of the capital project work began earlier this school year, during evenings and school vacations. This "Early Phase" work included the replacement of lighting within both school buildings, the installation of an updated access control system to improve school security, the replacement of the old telephone system for which replacement parts had become unavailable, with a new VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) telephone system, and a number of plumbing upgrades.  

At the end of the Spring 2018-19 semester, "Summer 2019" work began.  Most of the capital project work occurred at the BMS/RHS building, although some capital improvements occured this summer at the Chancellor Livingston Elementary School. 

The following work was scheduled to be undertaken as part of the "Summer 2019" Construction Phase:  

Chancellor Livingston Elementary School

Rhinebeck High School/Bulkeley Middle School

Additional work, most notably outdoor "sitework" will be addressed this Fall, weather permitting. During the "Summer 2020" Construction Phase, additional work will be undertaken. Much of that work will will address the facilities needs at Chancellor Livingston Elementary School, including the replacement of the window walls around the building. Additional work also will be completed at the BMS/RHS building and campus.
