Melrose Park School HVAC Update

March 27, 2020

Dear Melrose Park School Community,

We hope that your family continues to remain well during these challenging times. While our school remains closed due to COVID-19 I wanted to share some positive news with all of you. In October, the Board of Education approved a Geothermal project that will provide Emerson, Garfield, Irving, Lincoln, Melrose Park, Roosevelt and Washington Dual Language Academy (WDLA) with updated Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC). The system will be installed over the next 18 months. Construction will be starting at our school this month and you may have already noticed some heavy equipment and materials being delivered at our school. We are excited about this opportunity that will provide our school with air conditioning throughout the entire school for the first time in our schools’ history. More information regarding the project’s timeline, frequently asked questions and other updates from the school while construction is occurring will be placed on our school and district website in the coming weeks and months.

Also, a friendly reminder that we do offer Grab & Go meals and learning packets Monday-Friday from 10am-12pm at our school during the school closures. I miss you all and please continue to be safe out there.


Mrs. Leticia Valadez
