Tuesday evening, February 8 at 5:30 PM at the Mansfield Public Library’s Buchanan Auditorium, 54 Warrenville Road.
The programs are free and open to all.
Board of Education Chair Kathleen Ward will join Superintendent Lyman at the programs to provide an update on the construction progress of the new Mansfield Elementary School, Connecticut’s first net-zero public school in Connecticut. They will also share background about the goals for the learning spaces, details of the design plans, interior and exterior, and progress in the construction.
The school district has been sharing details about the school design with Parent-Teacher Organizations this fall in presentations tailored to families. The Mansfield Board of Education also published a special edition of a community-wide e-newsletter providing details on the transition activities for students and staff to guide establishment of a new unified culture at the new school.
The new Mansfield Elementary School is scheduled to open for the start of school year 2022-23.
