Moving Forward With Construction

Bittersweet as Weed Union Elementary School District is Moving Forward with the Necessary Rebuilding of Our Campus

By WUESD Board of Education representing the students, parents, staff and community of Weed, CA

The budget of the Weed Elementary School District has officially received a Positive Certification from the Siskiyou County Office of Education (SCOE). We are good stewards of the public’s tax dollars, just as we knew all along. This is excellent news for our district and should be celebrated.

In its January 6 letter to the district SCOE said:

The Siskiyou County Office of Education (SCOE) is in receipt of your First Interim Budget dated December 15, 2022. Per your submission, you have presented a Positive Budget, indicating that you have sufficient funds to meet your current and next fiscal year obligations. This represents significant progress since the District’s negative certification in March, 2022. Accordingly, this letter also confirms that SCOE’s enhanced fiscal oversight will end by operation of law due to the District’s positive certification, effective immediately.”

As a recap…during the 2020-21 school year, we suspected something wasn’t right with our buildings due to previous flooding and a suspicious odor. We immediately hired an industrial hygienist which found black mold. We at WUESD were required to take immediate actions for the health and safety of our students that required us to completely rebuild our classrooms due to black mold, structural deficiencies and seismic mitigation. The “bittersweet” is we have to say goodbye to our old buildings (we are keeping the gymnasium as it was built in 1992) as we prepare for our new state of the art school.

There are so many memories for most of us as we grew up in those buildings. The legends (Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Poloni, Mrs. Soletti, Mrs. Ray, Mr. Langford, Mr. Alvarado, Mrs. Girard, Ms. Girard, the list goes on and on) that taught us are directly tied to those classrooms. The lifelong friendships that were made in those rooms are absolutely priceless and those memories will be forever imbedded in our souls. However, those buildings have outlived their life expectancy and have become unsafe for our staff and students; it is time to say good-bye.

WUESD is absolutely dedicated to our students and our mission to provide the best education for all who enter our campus. As we rebuild this incredible campus, we will continue to put safety as our priority. On that note, please know that we completely abated those old buildings from any harmful material/dust before we demolished them. If you are interested in seeing any of the reports, please go to our website www.weedelementaryschool.com, navigate to the “Required Documents” page and look for the “Asbestos Clearance Results” and “Lead Clearance Results”.

This is an exciting time for Weed Elementary and all we represent. We will continue to keep you updated using our Facebook Page and our weekly bulletin. Please feel free to join us at our monthly Board Meetings (1st Thursday of each month) at 7:00 p.m., where we give our monthly update of the construction process. IT’S A GREAT TIME TO BE A WEED CUB!!!
