Air Conditioning APPROVED!

posted Feb 14, 2018, 2:16 PM by Patti Renaud   [ updated Mar 22, 2018, 8:16 AM ]

On February 13 the Town Council voted to approve the funding necessary to install air conditioning in the classrooms of four elementary schools (Buttonball, Hebron Avenue, Hopewell, Naubuc). Installation at the elementary schools is planned for this spring and summer. On March 21 the Town Council voted to begin the process to air condition Gideon Welles School as part of the 2018-2019 CIP (Capital Improvements Program) budget. We appreciate all the people—parents, teachers, students, and community members—who have taken time to support this project over the years. Note: Nayaug Elementary School, along with Glastonbury High and Smith Middle Schools, are already air conditioned. When all of our schools are air conditioned, all of our students and staff members will be able to focus on teaching and learning every school day.
