YORKTOWN, N.Y. - It has been a busy—but productive—summer on the campuses of Yorktown and Lakeland schools, with numerous building upgrades and improvements under way throughout the districts.
In Yorktown, crews are completing projects in all school buildings. These include a new front entrance at Yorktown High School, a renovated entrance and kitchen at Mildred E. Strang Middle School, the repurposing of a computer lab for a reading room at Crompond School, library renovations at Mohansic Elementary School and boiler replacements at Brookside Elementary School.
Throughout the district, classrooms, offices and cafeterias are getting fresh coats of paint and upgrades are being made to air-conditioning systems. Additionally, the technology department is overseeing upgrades to the district’s computer systems that will improve security and enhance digital services. The goal is to improve the infrastructure to maximize teaching and learning.
The work will be finished by Sept. 1, when students return to school, but in the meantime some parking areas and access roads are closed to the public.
Across town, crews are also finishing up work at all Lakeland school buildings. The work includes a new cabling for the new phone system and video cameras at all buildings; new LED lighting and a new ceiling in the main hall at Lakeland High School; new air conditioning and new lighting in the Lakeland High School library; new air conditioning in the Lakeland High School auditorium; and a new security station at Van Cortlandtville Elementary School.
