QUINCY — Quincy School District Superintendent Todd Pettit didn’t break any news at Wednesday night’s School Board meeting, but he did issue a reminder that means it’s almost time to get out of the pool.

Kids (and teachers): You have less than a month of vacation remaining.

Teachers report on Aug. 14 and students arrive Aug. 16. Returning Quincy High School students, meaning non-freshmen and transfers, will report to class on Aug. 17.

Pettit also said many construction projects are also well underway and should be completed before the buildings are filled with students. Projects include the new sprinkler at the Baldwin Elementary auditorium, cleanup and improvements to the Early Childhood and Family Center playground and a new cooler and freezer at Quincy Junior High.

And the new cooler and freezer will be installed just in time for the food orders that will be taking place. The Quincy School Board accepted the low bid from Kohl Wholesale of a little more than $1 million for food and nonfood items.

The Board also approved Prairie Farms’ low bid of $283,262 for milk and Kohl’s $64,231 bid for bread.
