Recent Construction Updates:
Over the summer, masonry work was completed for the external walls of the school building. Structural steel was installed in the classrooms area, with a metal deck for the second floor. Four early morning concrete pours – as early as 2:00 AM – completed this upper-story flooring. Steel roof span trusses were crane-lifted and welded in place. The stairs were completed, as were windows in the first-floor classrooms. Outside, masonry for the kindergarten storage, trash, and transformer enclosures was completed, and concrete was placed for two playground rings and two driveway aprons off New Forest Drive. The construction team, school stakeholders, future Inskeep students, and members of the Inskeep family celebrated a “Topping Out” in September, when the final steel beam was placed in the building. Pressure washing of the CMU blocks on the outside of the building has been a major task. Washing the blocks around the school perimeter could take as long as 14 days if performed continuously during all work hours.
Work is currently ongoing in the classroom area to install plumbing, HVAC ducting, fire sprinkler lines, and electrical conduit, as well as to complete the roofing. The completion of the roof will be followed by windows on the second floor, in addition to drywall and insulation throughout. In the areas where the administrative offices, library, STEAM lab, music room, and multipurpose rooms are, structural steel is being installed. Roofing of those areas will occur after the structural steel is in place. Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems will continue to be developed throughout the school.
Welcome to the Michael Inskeep Elementary School website. My name is Dr. Sue Egloff and I am the Principal at our new school in Cold Springs. I am honored to serve as the Principal and am already working hard to create a wonderful experience for all future students, families, and staff. I hope you have had the opportunity to see the construction progress already happening for our amazing school. I visit the site each week and am amazed at how fast it is going up.
Topping Out Ceremony on Friday, September 4, 2020 was a huge success and we were able to watch the final beam of the school be placed. Check out these pictures (more to come):
Update: September 2, 2020
Our Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) met last night to review the 900+ responses to our finalist survey. Thank you to all who provided their input. After much discussion, the PAC made a momentous decision for our Mascot and Colors:
Colors: Purple and Black
Mascot Rationale: Eagles reflects the community more so than the other top choices and was the overall favorite when reviewing the survey results.
Colors Rationale: Purple is a combination of red/blue which reflects Freedom Hill, purple reflects a purple heart and patriotic, and purple is majestic like in the song “America the Beautiful”.
Next Step: our school district's Communications Department will create three possible logos for the PAC to review and select. The goal is to have this completed by the end of September.
