Below is a view of the current site showing the latest thinking about the location and configuration of the temporary school and parking lot (inside the red circle). Once the final contract has been awarded for the modular units, the construction schedule will be updated, and we will begin to share information about what we can all expect when we drive onto the campus after the 4th of July.

Worth a 1000 Words…

At the 2/27 SBC meeting, the design team (SMMA/EwingCole) presented the latest iterations of interior and exterior design elements. Some examples are below, and more can be found in the image gallery here.

The next SBC meeting is on Wednesday, March 13th, 7:00pm, Hartwell multipurpose room.

The SBC is considering two options for controlling solar glare on the eastern and western sides of the Learning Commons:

2/27/19 (option 1) perforated metal screen; there is flexibility to design the image produced by the perforations

2/27/19 (option 2) series of horizontal slats based on design elements of original Smith School

Another view of the center of the school: main entrance, Learning Commons, and Dining Common

June 9th Primer (including Town Meeting FAQs)

In recognition of the fact that we all have different learning styles, here are two different ways to learn more about the specific proceedings on Saturday, and Town Meeting in general:

For those who enjoy multi-media, here is a short video. If you want more time to absorb any of the information, simply hit your space bar or pause. Do the same to continue playing the video. If you find the music distracting, mute the sound, and if you’re enjoying the Town Meeting soundtrack, pump up the bass!

For those who just want to enjoy a quiet PowerPoint, click here. The slide show will start to play automatically. If you want to advance the slides yourself, hit pause and then use the arrows to go forwards and backwards.  If you want a little music to keep you company, hit play on the soundtrack bar above the PowerPoint.
