Hildreth Building Project

Please click here to go to the HES Building Project site, including project updates, documents, upcoming events, etc.
Construction started in April, 2019. We are excited to see the new building begin! We also recognize that this will cause some disruption both to students and the community during construction.

Below are resources to help understand and minimize disruption during the construction:

-Drop off/Pick-Up Map 
Drop off/pickup map

Drop-Off/Pick-up will start the year the same as last year. Parents should enter on the South end of Fairbank Street (near 495) and will come around the traffic circle and then exit also on the south end of Fairbank. Once the road is complete in the next few weeks, we will update parents on the new traffic patterns.

- Timelapse video of the construction ( April 2019 - January 2020) : 

- Video: Live feed of building construction. Stream is available Monday thru Friday 7am thru 3pm.

As always, all are welcome to attend SBC meetings, which are posted on the town website. Please contact the school with any questions or concerns as construction commences.
