Happy 2022! It’s going to be a great year, building will begin on the new elementary building, we are getting closer to a state-of-the-art space for our students and our community!
January 2022 – What’s Happening On The Site
Early- Mid January
What’s Happening? Geothermal Test Bore
What is this for? This is a full depth well that will provide information on the earth conductivity values at the site. The Mechanical Engineer will use that data to confirm the well field size (well depths, number and spacing of wells.) The test well will be a part of the permanent well field system.
What to expect? This will happen for 3 days during the first half of January. There will be a drilling-rig truck and the DPW will be assisting with soil and water handling.
Next School Building Committee

New Upper & Lower Elementary Schools
What’s Happening On The Site
Exciting events are happening as we begin to build our new school! We will be sending out regular notices to make sure you are kept informed about activity on the Stanley School site.
During the month of December, engineers will be conducting survey, soil and geotechnical tests around the school property and materials inspection/surveying inside the building.
WHAT’S HAPPENING: Digging test pits
WHAT IS THIS FOR: Soil samples will help the team understand the quality and permeability of the soil, inform stormwater system and the foundation design
WHAT TO EXPECT: Pinflags and paint marking possible test locations; at multiple locations a 2-8’ hole will be dug, soil will be collected and then the ground will be restored; small machinery will be used; work will occur over 5 days
WHAT’S HAPPENING: Ground penetrating radar and geotech drilling
WHAT IS THIS FOR: To map ledge and soil characteristics to inform ledge removal and structural foundation design
WHAT TO EXPECT: Noiseless radar survey and geotech drilling to be coordinated with the school schedule, to minimize disruption
WHAT’S HAPPENING: Geothermal well test bore
WHAT IS THIS FOR: To provide soil thermal transfer characteristics data used to design the size and layout of the geothermal well field that will be used to heat/cool the school WHAT TO EXPECT: Work to occur at NW corner of site; 4-5 days of drilling; 1-2 days of restoration; the area will be temporarily fenced off
WHAT’S HAPPENING: Pre-demolition materials survey
WHAT IS THIS FOR: To determine how/what removal of building will entail
