I. Call to order Meeting was called to order at 8:42 a.m.

II. Meeting with Architects

There were “Random Questions” that were brought up first thing. We discussed putting a sprinkler system in the Library. We decided that it was not a School Board decision to make and that the library could make that own decision. We also discussed the entrance door to the library and that it will have to be replaced with a fire rated door due to code. The Library needs to have a sprinkler system or the fire rated door. We asked if the door could have glass in it to help see out. If the Library would like sprinklers or a glass front door then we all discussed that it is the financially responsibility of the Library to pay for it. The School Board agreed that we approved a fire rated solid door.

There will be double doors leading into the main classroom where there is current one single door.

We discussed a mini toilet for the 2nd bathroom. We decided that there were not enough small children to have that make financial sense. Bow over the existing 5 windows in the main classroom area. It is on the North wall. We discussed removing the center window to put a support in place to fix the bow. It was then discussed that two smaller supports could possibly be put on either side of the center window to help the bow. We have no baseline for how long the bow has been there and if it is getting any worse. We decided we would like to look
into having two supports on either side of the middle window instead of losing the whole window.

Phone lines that exist in the building are all on one line. Howard suggested talking to the Tech team through the school to see what school parameters might be. The school needs to have a separate line from the library.

Septic maintenance plan will have to be put into place once all work is complete.

Walls will be a two-tone color while the floors will remain the same shade of blue and be painted.

We discussed having a small under counter refrigerator for the break room.

We discussed the light fixtures in the main classroom and decided that they need to be updated. Other light fixtures throughout the building are period to the school. We would like those to stay.
There will be sheet flooring for the entry.
We will take down the current fire extinguishers and save them. Remove the piano upstairs. There is no value to it.

We agreed on using a standard toilet paper holder in the bathrooms.


III. Adjournment We adjourned the meeting at 10:08 am

Respectfully submitted:
Cari Alley, Cranberry school committee member
