WOODBURY – Students returning to Nonnewaug High School today after winter break will be in for a visual surprise, and may need a map (or a GPS) to find their way around.
Heavy lifting on the $63.8 million Nonnewaug renovation began on Friday. Some classrooms have been closed off, and students are being temporarily located in swing space which used to house school offices. The school offices were relocated to the Region 14 offices during the summer, and Region 14 offices were moved to Woodbury Middle School.
As required by the Connecticut Department of Health, a letter was sent to all parents and guardians of the students, faculty, and staff associated with Nonnewaug High School to advise of the abatement process that will begin on March 8 and is scheduled to run through May 18. This phase of the project, according to the letter, involves the removal of asbestos and PCB containing materials.
Abatement will not take place during the school day, and the work hours and days are listed in the below letter.
Langan CT, an independent environmental consultant (or its representative), will monitor the project. The monitoring includes, but is not limited to, daily inspections, air sampling during abatement activities, and final post abatement visual inspections and re-occupancy air sampling.
