Rockland — The opening of the renovated and expanded Oceanside High School will be delayed by one day.

Superintendent John McDonald issued a statement Thursday, Aug. 29.

"In order to give the staff and custodians a bit of extra time to settle into their new spaces, we are going to delay the opening of Oceanside High School one day," McDonald stated.

He said Wednesday, Sept. 4, will be freshmen orientation day and Thursday the remainder of the high school will begin classes.

All other Regional School Unit 13 schools will open Tuesday, as scheduled.

"Our school has undergone a fantastic transformation over a very busy summer," McDonald stated.

The high school students will make up the day on a previously scheduled teacher workshop, Friday, Sept. 13. All other schools will have a teacher workshop that day.

The superintendent thanked the staff and construction crews for their work.

He said an open house would be held at a to be set date for the high school project.

In addition, students being dropped off or picked up at school are to be dropped off at the former entrance, where the administration offices use to be located.

Work is still being done on the bus loop and new main entrance.

Thank you for pointing out my typo. That should have read -- and does now -- "a bit of extra time."
