• Manhasset Public Schools 2014 Bond/Capital Projects Update

    During the summer, several bond projects included in the December 2014 bond referendum were completed at Munsey Park and Shelter Rock including the following:

    Shelter Rock Elementary School

    In addition, at the Thursday, September 22 board of education meeting, the board awarded bids for projects contained in the 2014 bond referendum at Munsey Park and the secondary school.  Beginning the week of October 3, the reconfiguration of the bus garage into the administrative building will begin. The anticipated time frame for the completion of this project is March 2017.  The relocation of central office staff to the administrative building will follow.  When this occurs, the installation of three art rooms in the area vacated by central office staff will provide larger and more efficient work spaces for students.  The three art rooms will be ready for instructional purposes for the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. 

    Additional project work will occur in the summer of 2017.  It is anticipated that the majority of the projects will be substantially completed for the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year:
