Progress continues on the Woonsocket Elementary Addition. The roof was completed last week and the framers will be starting soon. The April snow set the construction back a few weeks, but the work is now caught up to the scheduled timeline.  Most of the building should be enclosed by the Fourth of July. The Woonsocket School would like to thank everyone’s understanding for closing the street during construction.  However, it will be back open during the Fourth of July festivities. The completion date for the elementary addition is still on track for the end of August.
