Licensed environmental contractors are hard at work removing the old building materials, including the entire ceiling, from the old wing of the Green Meadow School. That work will carry us through the school year, and wing will only re-open next year following another full round of air and environmental tests, which is standard during any abatement process.
During February break, crews worked aggressively to remove older building materials from other sections of the building, including the cafeteria corridor, where a modern drop ceiling was installed. The building was also cleaned and sanitized and surfaces and furniture were cleaned by the environmental contractors.
School re-opened Feb. 25 after another round of testing showed that the air and surfaces were clean — the state oversaw and approved these tests and the test results.
The closure of the old wing has been difficult, but the dedicated faculty, staff, administrators and volunteers that make up the Green Meadow community — and the Maynard community in general — have come together to ensure that the transition is as orderly as possible. The video below illustrates the classrooms that have been created for the rest of the 2018-2019 school year.
