Addition of Portable Classrooms
Dear Parents/Guardians:
Based on our current student enrollment, projections of additional students for next year and our desire to provide enough space for the educational needs of students, the School Division will be installing _2_ new portable classroom(s) at our school site this summer.
The Office of Facilities Services is in the process of determining the best location on our school site for the new portable classroom(s). Some of the factors affecting where the portable classroom(s) will be placed include student safety, accessibility to the school building, and proximity to  restrooms, electrical, state and local building codes, and other required services.
The new portable classroom(s) will be moved to the school property this summer, and set up for  use before September. As with all portable classroom installations, this is a temporary measure until permanent accommodations can be made.
If you have any questions about the location, the needed, or any other related issues, feel free to contact me directly.
Nathaniel Provencio, M. Ed.
