Unity Elementary School off to late start
The school board made the decision Tuesday night after meeting with the school construction team.
In an interview Tuesday, Trumbull-Nelson executive vice president Ronald Bauer said he was confident the school would be ready to open next Tuesday.
Though the school is nearly complete and expected to receive its occupancy permit from the fire marshal’s office Thursday, Unity Elementary School principal Chip Baldwin said Wednesday that some parents at the meeting Tuesday night expressed concerns that the school would not be thoroughly cleaned of the construction dirt and dust before Tuesday. The parents also wanted to ensure teachers had time to get into the school and prepare before classes start.
The school’s opening will be the end of an eight-year saga for the small school district, Baldwin said. The school district tried for four years to get a bond approved for the project until code violations finally pushed the issue.
In July 2013, the state fire marshal’s office placed a stop work order on construction. The old school had already been demolished so Claremont elementary and middle schools accommodated the Unity students and teachers for the 2013-14 school year.
