Rockland School Renovation Through the Fall
Superintendent's Department
News Photo Renovation began in June on Rockland School as two classrooms and a gymnasium, almost triple the size of the current gym, are added. The classrooms and gym are expected to be open when students return after winter break on Jan. 8, 2018. 

The construction began with the removal of the mobile classrooms. During the project, the school office will be reconfigured and provide a more secure entrance to the school. Remodeling also will include adding a small group office, new building access and a vestibule on the west side of the school, additional teachers-only parking on the west side, and updating and replacing the building sprinkling system. The east side parking lot will be resurfaced and the roof over the school office and multipurpose room (the current gym) will be replaced.
