The community makes use of the school for various purposes in summertime, Osborne said, and school officials don’t want the building to be completely unavailable.
And they want to make sure the abatement and new floors undertaken in each phase are completed in plenty of time before school resumes in the fall, he said.
“We’re going to have to now engage with our school architect (John McKenna Associates of Plattsburgh) and the Facilities Planning Unit at the State Education Department and set up our time table,” Osborne said.
“(The architect) is going to be giving us a pretty strong assessment now that we have the green light to move forward.”
