Binghamton Elementary School To Reopen Next Month
Classes are scheduled to resume next month at Calvin Coolidge Elementary School on Binghamton’s East Side.
Binghamton school superintendent Marion Martinez says the Robinson Street building is to reopen for students on December 2.
The school did not open in September because disturbed asbestos was discovered.
Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Martinez praised those who worked on the Coolidge asbestos removal project over the last several weeks.
The superintendent said the process of moving things back into the school is underway.
Martinez said teachers will be able to start working in their rooms in one section of the building on Tuesday. Teachers should begin working in rooms in the other part of the school on November 18.
Coolidge students have been attending class at three other Binghamton schools over the past two months.
The superintendent noted parents have wanted their children to be able to return to Coolidge as soon as possible.
