|Aerial View of Construction dated June 26, 2016|
While construction is moving along well and we are very excited about the future for Copeland Manor School, it is evident from this impressive aerial view that much ground work will be required as we look to restore the grounds and grassy areas upon completion of the new gymnasium. As a result, and with the removal of the library mobile, we will work to redirect children for play, as well as entrance and exit procedures come fall.
In the meantime, the energy at the school is exciting and we look forward to celebrating the many new features with our community in the 2016-2017 year.
