School Building Project Q and A Forum
As you know, we are facing a capacity issue at both of our elementary schools due to increased enrollment. The projected data indicates that we will run out of viable teaching spaces for the 2021-2022 school year. This information was presented after two years of research and data collection at a recent School Committee meeting after a presentation by the School Building Project Committee.
The School Building Committee is putting together a panel consisting of representatives from the School Building Committee, administrators and educators to answer any and all questions that you might have in regards to the proposed project. The panel members will be the guests of our Town Administrator’s Cable show, Town Talk that will air the week of November 2nd. It is vitally important that you are fully informed as we progress with this proposed timeline:
Monday, October 26: Selectmen approve warrant and possible election
Monday, November 2: School Building Committee presents to Finance Committee
Saturday, November 21: Special Town Meeting
Tuesday, December 8: Special Town Election
Please take a moment to review these two presentations prior to drafting your questions

1. Produce a negative COVID-19 test result from a test that is administered at least 5 days after arrival back into the state of Massachusetts. The result of this test must be given to the COVID liaison before returning to the building.
