Wellesley Middle School to open at least one day late

Posted by Ralph Ranalli September 3, 2007 08:09 AM


The principal of Wellesley Middle School says that the newly-renovated building will not be ready to open on the first day of school tomorrow.

School Committee officials expressed optimism earlier in the week that the necessary permits to occupy the entire building would be granted in time for the schedule opening. But Adam Blumer has told Globe West that a "pretty significant chunk" of the school, including the fitness center, gym, industrial room, and art room, has not cleared the permit system yet.

Blumer declined to elaborate. According to his e-mail, school officials hope to open by Wednesday.
