  Attached is a very informative case study that documents the details of the engineering aspect and the evaluation of utilizing "alternative construction" systems (i.e. pre-engineered metal).  We know that this question has been brought up by a few members of the community and was a main topic of discussion at the meeting last Tuesday.  The attached case study does an excellent job of explaining the details and breaks down the additional options that were considered.  This also helps to explain the impact of construction methods utilized related to the building structure and cost.

We just wanted to make sure that everyone understands and realizes that "alternative construction" methods were fully evaluated and considered.

The last line of the conclustion and recommendations portion of the document makes a great point.  If we utilized "alternative construction" systems, it would all but eliminate the storm shelter that can accommodate the whole school.  This would be a very negative impact on the safety that we are seeking for the students and staff at Weeping Water Public Schools.

Greenblatt & Seay & friends will be singing and playing a variety of instruments during the performance, including a 5-string fiddle, harmonica, guitar, tiple, and a bouzouki.
