We have been continuing to monitor the indoor air quality of the Terramar Elementary School.  We have witnessed reduced humidity levels in the academic building, especially in the Art Classroom, after we applied a sealant on this polished concrete floor.  We also carpeted the polished concrete sections of the kindergarten and preschool classrooms (although this will get replaced to be the correct color/pattern to match the existing carpet).  Humidity levels have been fluctuating at desirable levels around 35% (sometimes as high as 50%, depending on the weather).  We did discover a damaged roof drain pipe in the kindergarten playground area that has since been repaired along with the drainage pipe being cleaned out.  We have replaced one damaged window in the academic building and resealed some of the windows known to leak to learn what might be causing the occasional water intrusion we get during certain wind-driven rains.  We will continue to reseal all other windows that have leaked and/or show signs of not being sealed correctly as well as resealing any other portions of the building where we can identify water intrusion occurs.  And finally, we have been in contact with the Educational Facilities Clearinghouse (EFC) and they have provided us with assistance and suggestions for how to address some of the issues we have been contending with at Terramar Elementary School.  We have benefited from their expertise and knowledge and will continue to use the EFC as a resource as we continue to monitor the indoor air quality at this school.
