As the result of a flooding incident mid-November 2020 in the Greeneville Middle School gymnasium, the gym floor must be replaced. Greeneville City Schools received Board of Education approval at the February 23, 2021, meeting to proceed with the project. The floor will be replaced with wood material like that used for the Hal Henard Elementary School gym floor project last year. Insurance funds will cover all the $106k project except for the $1,000 deductible.
Removal of the old floor will begin on June 1, 2021. Greeneville Middle School gymnasium and classroom areas inside the gym will be closed for the entire summer. The project is expected to span for at least seven weeks.
Many sports teams and other groups utilize the gym. GCS wants to provide advanced notice that the space will be unavailable during the summer of 2021 so that alternate plans can be developed.
