Rockland Construction Almost Complete
Renovation of Rockland School that began last June is near completion with the addition of two classrooms and a gymnasium, almost triple the size of the current gym. A celebration of the project will be held at 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 16 at the school on Rockland Road. 

The construction began with the removal of the mobile classrooms. During the project, the school office was reconfigured to provide a more secure entrance to the school. Remodeling also included 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 was resurfaced and the roof over the school office and multipurpose room (the current gym) was replaced.
