Homeroom Update December 21, 2018

Things are coming along nicely and thankfully going quicker than we originally thought. Almost everything is dry now, just one wall that faces the exterior of the building, and one of the children’s bathrooms still have the fans and dehumidifiers running 24/7. We have replaced the broken ceiling tiles, repaired most of the drywall, and are choosing paint colors. The floors are getting professionally cleaned and sealed tomorrow. Most of the furniture was not damaged in the flood and is currently in a storage facility. We will be adding some new toys and “active play” equipment before we re-open, and Cassie and Erin have an amazing mural planned for the wall. Here are some photos of the progress so far:
