EXCEL CONSTRUCTION PROJECT TO AFFECT SCHOOL ENTRANCES AUGUST 15-25

Posted August 10 at 2:28pm

As our EXCEL project continues to progress, a new phase of construction work will require the temporary closure of the Route 6 entrance to the elementary and intermediate schools.

Beginning Tuesday, August 15, and through Friday, August 25, access to these school buildings and the district’s administration offices will be made through the middle school entrance. Access to the high school building will continue through the alternate high school entrance through August 25. We anticipate that all entrances will reopen August 26. 

This work is essential to the safety of our school community, and your patience and cooperation are greatly appreciated.
