Most Recent Kerner Update
November 4, 2022
Kerner Elementary Family,
I’m writing to you with our monthly update. At this time, we still anticipate an opening at the start of next school year at the Kerner Elementary campus in Lafitte. Repairs to Kerner’s campus are progressing well. As the existing HVAC system was damaged beyond repair, all equipment for the system’s components have been ordered, and the contractor is closely monitoring the delivery schedule of the HVAC parts. We expect parts to be delivered on a rolling basis the next few months, which are delayed because of the national supply chain issues with materials and equipment. New ductwork and chilled water piping are currently being installed so the contractor can install the chiller and its parts when they arrive.
We will continue to keep you informed about the recovery progress, and the next update will be provided the week of December 5. Thank you for your continuous support and understanding as we move forward for our students and our Lafitte community.
Dr. James Gray
