Huckleberry students move into new school postponed by flooring delays

The transition of Huckleberry Hill School students and staff in Brookfield into the new Candlewood Lake Elementary School is being delayed.  The goal was to move in on January 3rd, but the Municipal Building Committee told the Board of Ed at their meeting this week that there have been supply chain issues, especially with flooring, and construction timing issues with installation.  The Board of Ed and Superintendent of Schools sent a letter to families saying that they decided to wait until all floors and finishes in the areas they will occupy are complete before moving in.  Within the next few weeks, the town's construction contractor will be providing further information on timing.  Once they have specific dates, the Board of Ed will share the new move-in date for Huckleberry students, and other adjustments to the Brookfield school district calendar.
