Bethel school Superintendent Christine Carver has detailed construction plans for the Rockwell and Johnson renovation projects.  The school calendar calls for an August 29th start, with the last day scheduled for June 7th.  The following year will start the Tuesday after Labor Day, in order to maximize the time students are not in the buildings during construction. 


Carver told parents at the meeting Tuesday night that deliveries will be timed to avoid recess and drop-off times.  The loudest work will also be done after school hours, on weekends and school vacations.  When work is being done on the Johnson School gym, students will take phys ed in their classrooms, the cafeteria or outdoors.  Some Rockwell elementary students will be moved into portable classroom. 


The $65.8 million project is expected to take two years to complete.
