Park View School Incinerator Removed — Call to Get Involved in the School’s Modernization

Crane on Newton Place assisting with removal of school incinerator, January 7, 2012

Anyone in the vicinity of Warder and Newton Place on Saturday morning, January 7, 2012, is sure to have noticed a crane that was assisting with work at the Park View School. For those that aren’t up on the repairs and work going on at the school, the crane was needed to help remove the stack that was part of the old incinerator.

While incinerating trash was once a common practice, this isn’t something that anyone really does anymore. In preparation of the coming modernization of the school, the incinerator and its components, including the stack, were entirely removed freeing up space for other uses.

In preparation for the school’s modernization, the School Improvement Team (SIT) has already begun meeting. From what I’ve seen so far, the meetings are almost entirely made up of the school community with almost no representation from those that live in the neighborhood. Yet, the SIT process clearly states that community members and all stakeholders are to be involved in the process.

I encourage all interested residents to get involved. Meetings are currently scheduled for the third (3rd) Tuesday of every month at 3:30 p.m. The next meeting is scheduled for January 17th.

To become involved or find out more information, contact SIT Chair Kelley Padilla by email or phone (202 576-6222). Your involvement is essential.
