The current school site encompasses 11.8 acres of developed and wooded land. The new school will be located within the same property as the existing facility; however, the footprint of the new school will be larger. To enable construction to take place while school is in session, the new facility will largely be set behind the position of the current school.
Participation in the MSBA grant program for school building construction requires a thorough examination of potential site options throughout the town. The site that was chosen was identified as part of the Feasibility Study phase of the project.
