EASTCHESTER, N.Y. After a long summer, Eastchester schools are set to welcome students back from their vacations Tuesday, with several new construction projects nearing completion.
According to a letter sent to parents by Superintendent Marilyn Terranova, there have been several improvements made to the districts energy effectiveness.
Boilers in Greenvale have been replaced with more efficient versions. Boilers in the high school and middle school are in place, and the necessary connections will be in place shortly. Lighting upgrades that commenced in the spring have continued through the summer and are near completion.
The Anne Hutchinson Masonry Restoration Project is approximately 90 percent complete. The cleaning of the exterior is mostly complete and work will continue on the front entry area with the repair of the entry steps.
The construction of a rear driveway at the Middle School is nearly finished. New concrete curbs, asphalt driveway and pads for the bleachers have been put in place. The district still is waiting on inspection of new gas and electrical connections to the building. Once they are approved, the open trenches on the school grounds will be filled.
Parents are advised that delays are anticipated during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up. Traffic and security personnel will be on hand to direct vehicles.
Those coming from the north end of town are instructed to drop off students in the high school circle. Enter from Route 22 in front of the high school and exit south through Stewart Place. No drop-offs are to be permitted in front of the middle school.
For those travelling from the south end of town, there will be one drop-off area for both middle and high school students behind the Middle School on Lincoln Avenue.
