Campus getting new carpeting

South Whidbey School Board approved a $78,465 project to replace gym floor carpet at South Whidbey Elementary School South Campus.

The room has been used as a multipurpose facility serving physical education (PE) classes, food service and other activities for K-2 students. The existing carpet, however, became detached from the flooring in a number areas, causing “bubbles” on the surface, according to school documents.

The gym is being used heavily for PE classes and the carpet is “not conducive” to that activity.

The district hired Hart’s Athletic Floors and Construction from Snohomish for the project. In addition to new flooring material, the company will install floor sleeves for volleyball net standards, lines for basketball, pickle ball, volleyball and a 20-foot radius circle.

The work will be done during winter break and comes with a 10-year warranty.
