The COVID-19 pandemic shut down construction of the new Colonial Middle School in late March. Work was allowed to resume the week of April 13th after the project was granted a waiver by the governor.
According to the Colonial School District, the work underway now is following social distancing guidelines and increased safety protocols, such as the addition of outdoor hand washing basins and the wearing of masks.
The new middle school is tentatively scheduled for occupancy in January 2022. It is not yet known if the delay due to the pandemic will impact the completion date.
