SARATOGA SPRINGS — Students at Lake Mountain Middle School have been waiting for nearly one month to attend school at a new building, but due to construction delays were unable to.
However, school officials announced Tuesday the state fire marshal granted partial occupancy for the new school building, starting Wednesday.
While construction still isn’t finished, the division between occupied areas and construction was the best the marshal had ever seen, school officials wrote on Facebook.
The building was open Tuesday evening for parents and students to tour, school officials said.
Parents are asked to avoid driving their students to the new school until construction is complete, to limit additional traffic in the area.
According to the school’s Facebook account, the semester began the week of Aug. 19 and since then students have attended school at Vista Heights Middle School satellite buildings, located 2 miles away, that include online learning, transportation, school lunch, special education as well as contact with Lake Mountain Middle School faculty.
