Schools in Beloit Undergoing Summer Projects

The School District of Beloit announced on Monday that it is undergoing multiple summer projects that include Hackett Elementary and Beloit Memorial High School.

A brand-new roof is being installed on older sections of Hackett Elementary school.

“After years of diligent maintenance efforts and several leaks that caused damage, we needed to replace the older sections,” said Tommy Bricco, Director of Facilities. “This upgrade ensures a dry and safe environment for our staff and students at Hackett Elementary for years to come.”

Beloit Memorial High School is undertaking a five-million-dollar HVAC update. The project is expected to be completed by August and will include air conditioning and boiler updates. Officials say it will be paid for by the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund grant program.


“Completing this project will provide better climate control throughout most of the building, creating a more comfortable learning environment for students and staff,” said Executive Director of Business Services Bob Chady.

Chady said that these upgrades are key for students’ success.

“In essence, investing in the upkeep of school facilities is not just about maintaining physical structures; it’s about creating a safe, healthy, and supportive environment where students can thrive academically and socially,” said Chady.

The school district will also be upgrading the main Fire Alarm Panel and transponders at Beloit Memorial High School.
