manteo elementary addition struggling to meet schedule
Overcrowded with outdated design features, Manteo Elementary School has needed more space for some time. The $3.15 million addition will create more room and modern facilities for students, but as Michelle Wagner writing for the Outer Banks Voice reports, construction delays may prevent the new wing from opening as scheduled on December 29.
“Unforeseen glitches have left construction of the Manteo Elementary addition about a month behind schedule, but school officials say contractors are working hard to make up the time.
“The progress may not be sufficient enough to meet the targeted completion date,” Dare County Schools Director of Facilities Jim Winebarger said. “That’s a very real possibility.”
