• Groundbreaking for school work
    November 23,2012

    WILMINGTON — The groundbreaking is scheduled for next week on a project to consolidate some schools in a Vermont community.

    Plans are to expand Deerfield Valley Elementary School in Wilmington. More classrooms and space for art and music will be added, plus a new cafeteria.

    Groundbreaking is scheduled for Monday at 8 a.m.

    The plan is for Whitingham elementary students to join Wilmington students at Deerfield.

    Students in grades six through 12 will go to the site at Whitingham Middle School, which will become both the middle school and high school.

    Officials told the Brattleboro Reformer that the consolidation effort means they will have the ability to focus more on a K-12 curriculum.

    Construction is scheduled to be finished in September 2013.
