Some common area -- including the Library Media Center and the main hallway boys' and girl's bathrooms -- are still undergoing cleaning and may still be secured from students and staff come Thursday.
As has been discussed in previous memos and the informational session held Aug. 15, the gymnasium must undergo further remediation and will not be reopened for some time. The district expects to have a temporary gym on-site by the end of September; for now, gym classes will be held outdoors or in the all-purpose room during inclement weather.
Staff members and teachers are scheduled to begin setting up classrooms today. School officials ask that parents and students refrain from visiting and the memo states that there will be no kindergarten visitation day before Thursday.
