    Fuller Middle School Construction FAQs

    When is construction starting?
    Construction began June 24, 2019.  The new parking lot behind the Farley Building, the temporary bus drive, parent drop-off/pick-up drive and teacher/staff parking lot in front of the current Fuller school and the parent drop-off/pick-up drive and teacher/staff parking lot on the east side of the McCarthy school have all been completed, and the work on the new school has begun.  

    Will ongoing use of the current Fuller Middle School be impacted during construction of the project? 
    The existing Fuller School will be fully functional during construction.  Construction activity will be phased and separated from the day-to-day functions of the current Fuller school to ensure safety and to limit disruption to the educational process. A fenced-off construction zone with a dedicated construction vehicle access will be monitored for safety and dust control. The construction area will be separated from both Fuller and Farley classroom areas by the non-classroom spaces in each building such as gymnasiums, cafeteria and auditorium.  

    When will construction be completed?
    Construction of the new Fuller Middle School building will be completed in the summer of 2021.  The new school will be operational for the start of the 2021/2022 academic year. Demolition of the current Fuller building will commence summer 2021, followed by the construction of the parking lot and playfields by late 2021.
