Central Office Lobby Renovations Scheduled to Begin

Central Office Lobby Renovations Scheduled to Begin

Hagerstown, MD (October 15, 2007)- Renovations to the main entrance and lobby of the Washington County Public Schools' central office began on Thursday, October 18, 2007, and the work is expected to be completed in early December. The main entrance, lobby, auditorium, and adjacent hallway will not be accessible. During that time the Planetarium entrance will be used as the main entrance to the building.
Because the auditorium will be affected by the work, the Board of Education will hold their November meetings in alternate locations. The November 6th business meeting will be held in the North Hagerstown High School auditorium at 12pm. The November 20th meeting is scheduled in the South Hagerstown High School auditorium at 6pm. If necessary, December meetings will be moved off site, but a schedule and locations have not been determined.
When the work is complete the entrance and lobby area will be user-friendlier with a staff member greeting citizens, parents, and prospective employees. Energy savings will also be realized with a more efficiently designed entranceway to the building.
