1. WHEN WILL IT BE FINISHED?
Our goal is to receive our Certificate of Occupancy by this Friday, Aug. 15. We will still have more work to do over the next few months creating the playgrounds, athletic field and landscaping but the building will be open for students in time for the new school year.
2. WHEN WILL THE CURRENT SCHOOL BE DEMOLISHED?
The current school will be demolished and all of the debris removed by the end of the month!
3. WHEN WILL TEACHERS BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE SCHOOL?
The goal is for teachers to begin moving in on Monday, Aug. 18, keep your fingers crossed!
4. WHO WILL USE THE FIELD AND GYMNASIUM AFTER SCHOOL HOURS?
RPCA will program the use of the field and gym after school unless we have a school event.
5. THERE SEEMS TO BE AN INCREASE IN THE AMOUNT OF TRUCKS ARRIVING ON SITE OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS, HOW LONG WILL THAT LAST?
This will be the busiest week by far in the project as we work to get Certificate of Occupancy by the end of the week and simultaneously demolish the current building. It will slow down after this week.
6. WHEN IS THE GRAND OPENING?
The grand opening is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 12.
