    Holly Conley is the latest to join the team of educators at Osolo Elementary

    Conley, who taught at Monger Elementary for 10 years, was appointed assistant principal at Osolo during an Elkhart Community Schools board meeting Tuesday, Aug. 12. 

    She recently completed coursework for her administrator license at Bethel College

    The board also heard an update on construction projects from Tony Gianesi, building services director. 

    Gianesi said the renovation of Elkhart Memorial High School’s cafeteria was completed Tuesday, just days before students return Friday, Aug. 15, Elkhart’s first day of school. 

    PA system replacements at Elkhart Central High School, the classroom section of Central’s roof replacement project and camera system installation at Central are also completed.

    Four schools — Beardsley, Pinewood, Woodland and West Side — will be getting office additions, so visitors to those schools must pass through the front office before entering any other part of the school.

    That work is scheduled to begin in November, with a completion date of July 31, 2015, for all four schools. 

    The new classroom locks have been installed at Mary Beck and Eastwood, and work to install locks at the other buildings is under way.
