Dear HMS Families,
As you know, a construction incident last weekend caused a great deal of water to be released from the school's sprinkler system into hallways and classrooms in the 5th and 7th grade corridors. To ensure there is no long-term damage, the contractor began replacing small sections of sheetrock throughout those areas of the building yesterday. This work will be quite visible, but should not disrupt the academic setting in any way. Bookcases and cabinets will be pulled out from the walls, allowing the space necessary to replace any damaged sheetrock, and contractors will be completing the work outside of school hours. The entire process should be completed within the next two weeks.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Thanks very much,
