Superintendent of Schools Thomas Scarice today issued the following update to school families:
Dear Westport Families and Staff,
Last evening the Coleytown Middle School Building Committee (CSMBC) informed the Westport Board of Education (BoE) that the school renovations will not be completed on time. This will delay the handover of the school from the CSMBC to the BoE as scheduled for November 20, 2020. The CSMBC will provide a formal update to the BoE at the November 16, 2020, BoE meeting, at which time the BoE expects to determine a new date for a handover of the school.
The comprehensive timeline for reopening Coleytown Middle School from the date of handover by the CSMBC to the BoE, as discussed by the BoE at its prior meeting, remains intact. These preparations by the BoE and administration will ensure the school is ready to greet staff and students as soon as the CSMBC completes its work.
