Dear Central Berkshire Families and Community Members,
 

As we head into the last few weeks of summer, I wanted to update you on the progress of our new Wahconah Regional High School.  We continue to see a learning setting unfold that is all that we had hoped for toward its inception as a beautiful and progressive learning space for students and staff. We are extremely fortunate to be working with a dedicated team of experts that have done everything possible to make optimum progress under (at times) difficult circumstances due to the pandemic. Procurement of resources has been an ongoing challenge for our construction team despite heroic efforts toward our projected timelines for completion. 

In consideration of multiple factors that take into account all that is needed (and required) to provide optimum learning spaces, I have made the decision to delay opening the new Wahconah until October 12, 2021. This decision was made in consultation with our Wahconah Building Project team of experts and advisors to ensure that our 9-12 graders enter a building that is as we intended it. Please know that it is rapidly moving in that direction! In the meantime, Principal Robb and his team will be making plans to start the school year in the original building. He will finalize and communicate plans directly to Wahconah families in the coming days. We are excited to introduce this new and amazing setting to our community once the building is ready for our learners. 
 

Thank you,
Leslie Blake-Davis
Superintendent
