Manvel High School will soon undergo a 10-month construction period after the Alvin ISD board of trustees approved remodeling the school’s servery, which is where meals in the cafeteria are served, at its Jan. 9 meeting.

In a nutshell

The remodel is due to age and wear on the appliances in the servery, according to district agenda documents. The remodel will bring the servery up to the standards of the other serveries at the other three AISD high schools.

The board awarded the bid for the project to Construction Masters of Houston Inc., totaling about $3.2 million, Superintendent Carol Nelson said at the Jan. 9 meeting.

A portion of the $3.2 would be from the Child Nutrition Fund, a federal fund that promotes the end of children wasting food, and another portion would be from AISD’s local fund, Nelson said at the meeting.

Looking ahead

Once the servery is upgraded, more refrigeration will be available for fruits and vegetables, according to district documents. The new appliances will also have between a five- and 10-year warranty, according to the documents.
