Unity students will be bused to Claremont
“We are planning on busing K through fifth grade students to Disnard Elementary School and sixth through eighth students to Claremont Middle School,” Assistant Superintendent Elaine Arbour said Wednesday.
Unity students will be taught in their own classrooms by their own teachers, Arbour said.
Concerns from parents have centered around “not wanting that level of change for their kids,” she said.
At least one family is opting out until the new school opens, though, Arbour said. “I have been told by one family that they are planning to home school until the new school opens because they don’t want them to go to another district.”
Vaughan has managed the entire project.
As the project progressed, additional classrooms and science labs were added and the half-sized middle school gymnasium was increased to a full-sized middle school gymnasium, Vaughn said at town meeting.
Two weeks ago the state fire marshal’s office halted construction when the next phase of designs had not been approved yet, Arbour said.
“The actual construction has gotten ahead of the approved plans,” Arbour said.
The new plans are to be approved in the next few weeks and construction will continue; in the meantime finishing work can be done, but no new construction, she said.
Arbour admitted there have been more delays than typical in a school building project, but said she is confident the building will be completed this fall.
