The repair and resurfacing of seven tennis courts at Sierra High School has been completed to the tune of $45,200.

The total cost includes labor and materials, according to the report presented to the Manteca Unified School District Board of Trustees Tuesday night.

The board unanimously approved the resolution which declared the project as completed and acceptable. Hired to perform the job was First Serve Productions of Danville, which inked the contractual agreement with the district in July.

“I hear they’re the best tennis courts in the district,” Assistant Superintendent of Personnel Services Don Halseth during the discussion prior to the trustees’ vote.

Also approved by the board Tuesday night was the resolution which officially declared another construction project at French Camp School with cost totaling $29,586. Construction costs came from Title funds.

The project, which involved the remodeling of the existing staff lounge to a preschool classroom, initially had an estimated budget of $28,626. A change order during construction occurred requiring an additional $960 to the initial budget. The additional funds were used for a countertop with a children’s sink, refurbishing of the existing cabinetry, and the provision of refurbished upper cabinets.

Before it was presented to the board as completed, the project was inspected and approved by Director of Facilities Michael Garr, construction manager John Leandro, and French Camp School Principal Joanne Balestreri.

The contract for the project between the school district and General Modular Construction of Lockeford, was executed in June.

French Camp Elementary School, a historical point of interest in the valley, is located at 241 E. fourth Street in French Camp.
