HELENE GRANT SCHOOL CANCELLED FOR REST OF WEEK

 
 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 6, 2012
 
 
New Haven Public Schools is requesting help from media in publicizing the following school closing: 
 
HELENE GRANT SCHOOL IS CANCELLED FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK AND WILL REOPEN MONDAY AT NEW LOCATION
 
Helene Grant School is cancelled for the rest of this week and will reopen Monday, Feb. 11 at its new temporary home, which will be located at the former Amistad Academy site at 540 Ella Grasso Blvd.
 
An automated phone message went out to parents today about the move to the new location and with information about transportation for students. Helene Grant students will follow their regular bus schedule next week. For parents who walk or drive their child to school, they should report to Helene Grant on Goffe Street at their normal start time. We will run a shuttle to the new location on Ella Grasso Boulevard every day next week. Your child will be shuttled back to Grant for pick-up at normal dismissal time.
 
Helene Grant is slated for demolition this summer to make way for construction of a new state-of-the-art early learning center as part of the district’s School Construction Program. 
 
District officials are working closely with state and federal officials as well as environmental consultants to address the situation. The district expects to issue a joint release with the support of its state and federal partners with more details about the findings at Helene Grant. Through its ongoing School Construction Program, New Haven Public Schools has been proactive in pre-construction testing and has a positive record on compliance with respect to environmental regulations and protocols.
