Displaced third-graders warmly welcomed by Windham high-schoolers
The past month has been a challenging one for the local school district, which is coping with a number of displaced Golden Brook Elementary School students after water and mold damage forced administrators to shutter a portable classroom building housing eight classrooms.
The third-grade classes will be spending the rest of the school year at the high school, while four first-grade classes will be moved to other areas of Golden Brook School, including the art and music rooms and the computer lab.
Once the kids arrived inside, another special surprise was in store: their very own lockers with official “Windham High School Class of 2023” T-shirts tucked inside.
An open house was held at the high school Sunday evening, and school officials said the majority of parents and children opted to attend.
School Board chairman Mike Joanis said the board is still unsure whether the structures should be repaired or would best be replaced.
According to the report, which is posted on the district’s website, various major expenditures would be necessary in the near-term to retain the current modular building, including foundation and structural repairs, siding and window replacement and replacement of heating and cooling units.
