ESBC to Review Center School Gym Floor, Other Punch List Items

Elementary School Building Committee’s work coming to a close

On Thursday, the Tewksbury Elementary School Building Committee will gather in the Center Elementary School music room at 6 p.m. On the agenda are the gym floor, building security and the PA and HVAC systems.

A noted expert in wood flooring was brought in to examine the Center Elementary gym floor, which showed some gaps and cupping in the boards. Based on his findings, the committee will decide how to address the issues. Residents can also expect an update on remaining funds after approval of some $139,000 in outstanding invoices.

The Center Elementary School, or CES, serves about 750 students in grades 2, 3 and 4 and replaced the Trahan and North Street schools. In 2019, Town Meeting voters approved borrowing of $98,500,000 to build the new facility, with funding from the Massachusetts School Building Authority. It was completed on time and under budget, despite the pandemic. Students and staff moved from the North Street, Tra­han, Heath Brook and Dewing schools over 2022 holiday break, and an official ribbon cutting was held in February.
