• Referendum Update 06/13/19


    On June 17th the Security Vestibule and ADA Ramp at KHS will begin construction.  This project will proceed through the summer.

    In approximately the second week of July construction will start on the KHS Water Drainage and Water Proofing projects.

    Security Locks in both KCS and KHS will be installed in mid-July.

    The electrical work for the HVAC project at KCS is continuing to proceed.  Demolition of old unit ventilators will begin on Monday, June 17th.  New unit ventilators should be on site in early July.  Each day, between two and four ventilators will be installed.

    Abatement work and new VCT Tile Installation will start in conjunction with the HVAC project.

    These are exciting times for Keyport Public Schools!




    Referendum Update- 05/08/19



    The HVAC project at KCS has started.  Electricians have been working after school hours.  They are laying electrical wires throughout the building.  This will allow the actual HVAC units to be installed in a timely manner once the students and staff leave the building in mid-June.

    Additionally, there will be a trailer used for storage located in back of the Central School gym on the grass section.

    We have received permits from the town for the projects.  We have also received a permit from the Freehold Conservation District to proceed with the water proofing project at Keyport High school.
