Bulletproof glass being installed at Danbury High School entryway

Renovations to Danbury High School are progressing.  School officials weren't sure if they'd be completely ready for a traditional August start to school, so this year Danbury students will be starting the year after Labor Day.  Superintendent Dr Sal Pascarella says that's giving them time to dot the "i"s and cross the "t"s.  The entrance way and egress for the buses have been changed.  There's separate entrances for parents and buses dropping off or picking up. 

 

The main entrance of Danbury High School was moved because by law, the glass has to be bulletproof.  Pascarella says the entrance in the morning is now just past the auditorium, by the art wing.  Officials are hoping to have the bulletproof glass installed in the main entrance within the next three or four weeks.

 

The cafeteria was the other expansion.  A temporary wall is coming down and the permanent wall is going up.  It will have glass, but does not have the same criteria as the front entrance way.

 

At the other schools in the district, workers have been replacing ceiling titles, redoing floors and painting.  Pascarella says things have been chaotic, but in the last week they've really come together.

 

Besides moving the start date back, the other modification to the school year in Danbury is that administrators and staff did not have convocation at the high school because of the construction.
