ALUMNI NEWS    

   BRANFORD H.S. SWIM ALUMNI UPDATE #32  (March 2018)

WALSH INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL UNDERGOING MAJOR CHANGES

There is an 88-million-dollar renovation of the Intermediate School which has been funded, approved, and gone out to bid. Work will begin within a few months.  There will be an entirely new academic area and the back half of the building will be torn down when the new academic area is complete. The pool and gyms will remain with minor renovations but major renovations will take place to the locker rooms and cafeteria areas. The pool renovations will take place at the end of the project so the pool should remain open most of the time over the next two years.  The bottom line is the pool will survive the renovations.
