School officials say the city's new middle school[snip]
won't be ready for students when their vacation ends on Jan. 4. Work remains to
be finished before the city can issue a certificate of occupancy. That will
likely delay the start of classes or force school officials to move students
back into Wescott Junior High School until the work is finished.
"We need to figure out how to teach kids out of a- John C.L. Morgan
suitcase in a room with no furniture back at Wescott, or figure out a way how to
not hold school for more than a week," said Greg Smith, a member of the
[building steering] committee.
