SL New Elementary

TURIN- Residents of South Lewis Central School District have until this Friday, October 30 to fill out a survey aimed at giving officials guidance on what should become of both Glenfield and Port Leyden Elementary buildings.

The two historic establishments are aimed to close next fall, as voters approved a capital improvement project two years ago that included a new elementary addition to the middle and high school location, ultimately making a single pre-K through senior high campus.

"We have been working to try and figure out the best plan of action to try to have a situation where Port Leyden and Glenfield elementary buildings could become viable uses for this community in the future," Superintendent of Schools Douglas Premo said.

The survey can be found online through South Lewis Central School's website.

Construction has been underway in terms of erecting a brand new elementary facility at the middle and high school campus in Turin. "Construction will continue right through the winter," Premo said. "The goal is in the next four to eight weeks to have the roof on the building and for the work to go inside."

If for some reason there is a delay with the construction process, Glenfield and Port Leyden schools can be used next year until the facility is ready.

Premo clarifies that everything is on schedule for a single pre-K through senior high campus by the fall of 2021.
