    School Construction Update

    Submitted by Elizabeth Lewis, School Building Committee

     1

    It has been a very busy and exciting month for the teachers and administrators at the middle and high schools.  On June 9th, Dimeo Construction Company received the Certificate of Occupancy and turned the new middle and high school building over to Duxbury Public Schools.  As the school year wound down, the teachers sorted and packed thousands of boxes of books and equipment to be moved into the building.  Within days of the end of the school year, surplus items were sold at the schools’ yard sale raising $4,500 for the Town and movers had completed the move.  Throughout the month of June, deliveries of new furniture and equipment arrived daily. 

    2  

    The vacated middle school has been fenced and abatement and hazardous material removal has begun; demolition is scheduled to begin in September and continue for approximately one month.  The same work will occur at the high school, with a schedule that lags behind approximately two weeks. 

    3  

    The building continues to be a very active site as construction workers finish punch list items, vendors install technology equipment, and furniture and equipment is delivered and assembled.   To that end, we remind residents that the building is not open to the public for visits or tours at this time unless required for school related business.  All visitors must sign in at the middle school office and will be escorted to their destination.

    4

    We look forward to putting the finishing touches on the building to be ready for the ribbon cutting ceremony on August 28th at 2:00 p.m.  Following the ceremony, the public is welcome to tour our beautiful new middle and high school.   Duxbury Public Schools will provide updates on changes to traffic patterns and parking later in the summer.  Please note that the Superintendent’s office and School Business office have been relocated to the Canty Wing of Chandler Elementary School.
