The Newfield Central School District Board of Education is all but decided that the recent terrazzo tile installation in the middle school entrance must be fixed on the contractor’s dime.
But the high school foyer – home to a Trojan head logo with the wrong shade of green – is a different matter. At their meeting on Thursday night, board members were unsure as to how best to proceed. Keystone Associates, capital project architects and engineers, has stated that any major fixes carry more risk than reward. Also, they’ve said there isn’t enough remaining terrazzo tile to implement a large-scale reinstallation.
Newfield sought a second opinion from a different architect, who suggested applying epoxy paint to the letters circling the logo, District Superintendent Cheryl Thomas said. As it stands currently, the silver letters that spell “Newfield High School” are hard to read against the light green color, which was mistakenly installed instead of dark, forest green. Keystone Associates has owned up to the mistake, Thomas has said.
The board will take another look at the high school logo during their next meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 3. Board members requested tile samples to compare colors during the walk-through.
