Plant Construction, our general contractor, began work on June 18 In order to complete the Lower School classrooms by the opening of the school year, our construction crew will be working longer shifts: Monday-Friday from 7a.m.-5 p.m.,and on most Saturdays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Work on the community/cafeteria space will likely continue into early spring 2019.
Plans are being finalized to provide a full lunch service using a modular kitchen unit and seating under a large tent. The lunch service will occupy the Upper School outdoor courtyard. This will allow Acre Gourmet, our lunch provider, to continue to provide a healthy and varied lunch program. We will fill you in as plans become more concrete.
Yes, most summer camps will be taking place, but will occur largely on the Upper School campus. We are working on those details and will have more information for you soon.
