Buchanan Community Schools News Release
Middle School Update
On Thursday afternoon, we met with our Construction Managers to get an update to the situation at the Middle School. Based on field inspections, meetings, observations and work progress this week, it has been determined that the theft and damage to the Middle School has affected critical mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems. We have cancelled our fire and building code inspections that were to occur on August 27. Inspections have been rescheduled for Sept. 3.
Due to the fact that a week of construction was lost, we are no longer comfortable saying that school will open on Sept. 8. The projected first day of school is now Sept. 14.
If you are a parent of a Middle School student, please make note of the following:
· Sept. 1 has been cancelled
· Orientation has now been scheduled for Sept. 10 at the Middle School gym.
· If we need to use an alternative site on Sept. 10, we will move to the high school and let you know through instant alert and Facebook.
We appreciate all the community support. We are Bucktown strong!
Dr. van der Laan, Buchanan Community Schools Superintendent
