Peninsula: 3 schools to receive repair aid

Three school districts on the North Olympic Peninsula will benefit from recently awarded one-time Emergency School Repair and Renovation grants.

The Quilcene, Port Angeles and Cape Flattery school districts will each receive $100,000.

Statewide, more than $9.4 million was awarded for facility improvements in 97 school districts this year.

According to Jocelyn A. McCabe, director of communications for the state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Quilcene School District grant will pay for heating and ventilation repairs at the elementary school.

The money will also help upgrade the high school to better comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, she said.

The Port Angeles School District received funding for several projects at the high school. They include heating and ventilation improvements, roof repairs, asbestos abatement, upgrading the fire alarm system and improving facilities to better comply with ADA, she said.

The Cape Flattery School District will complete several projects with the grant funding.

McCabe said that district will improve the Neah Bay Elementary School roof and window systems and the Clallam Bay School bleacher system.

The Sequim Logging Show, seen in May 2023, will operate next year as its own nonprofit organization to seek insurance coverage separate from the Sequim Irrigation Festival. Organizers of both the festival and show say it was a pragmatic decision and is similar to what the festival did in late 2017 after leaving the umbrella of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce.
