Marfa High Renovations

Fixing Some Floors And More
by Marcelo Funke

Five classrooms should take about five weeks, but we have to go through a bid process.
— Andrew Peters - Superintendent

     Recently the floors at Marfa High have been in rough condition. Termites and water leakage have been eating away at some school floors. Mr. Peters, superintendent at Marfa High, is making all the necessary plans to fix this problem. “Five classrooms should take about five weeks, but we have to go through a bid process.” A bid process seems to be why the renovations will take until the summer to fix because it requires a strict background check on all construction workers (which are very hard to find around Marfa). “There was even talk of building a new high school.” Mr. Peters says, “But it’s a lot cheaper to fix up the old car than buy a brand new one.”
     One way we could see these renovations done is by a new concrete flooring with a moisture barrier and a nice carpet covering it. There is even going to be renovations in the school library turning it into one huge library with tile floors for both Montessori and Marfa High School. Offices could also get moved down to the Elementary as a potential solution. Either way, it seems concrete flooring is the concrete plan. Beginning the first of June the renovations should take till the middle of July if everything goes as planned.
