Dear Parents/Guardians, I hope the school year has been going well for you and your student(s). The reason for this letter is to inform you that FTMSW will be doing some repair to our gym floor over the next few days. Due to some facility issues at the Annex (our athletic competition facility), West has moved all fall, indoor athletic events to our home building on Edgewood. Because of this temporary move our gym surface needs to be conditioned to improve the playing surface for our competitive athletics. Today and tomorrow our gym floor will be stripped of its old surface and receive a new coat of wax. Because of this process our physical education classes will be going outside to participate in outdoor programming. We have instructed our PE staff to be cautious of the heat and weather during these two days. In the even the heat is too extreme they will move their curriculum to an indoor classroom environment. In addition to the relocation of our PE classes students may notice an odor from the freshly applied wax. This odor from the wax is harmless and simply has a smell that is not common to our daily school schedule during our normal school year. This inconvenience will last only a short time, and according to maintenance the odor will dissipate after one week. As we continue through this process we will continually monitor student and staff well-being. Once the process is complete our gym surface will have a new, safer, surface for student activities. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to make FTMS West a great place for our students! Sincerely, Matt Vandermark
