Staff to begin move into Runnymede Elementary

January 10, 1994|By Anne Haddad | Anne Haddad,Staff Writer

Staff at Runnymede Elementary School can begin moving in over the next month, but no date has been set for students to begin classes there, said Lester Surber, supervisor of school construction.

But Dr. Surber said he is optimistic the school would open for students by early next month.

County officials issued Thursday a "temporary use and occupancy permit" that allows staff to use the building and finalizes the move, Dr. Surber said. The Carroll County Health Department also approved the permit, he said.

Dr. Surber, the contractor and agencies involved in the move plan to have a date by the 9 a.m. Wednesday meeting of the Carroll County Board of Education.

The school originally was to open in September, but construction delays from snow last winter caused school officials to predict a January opening. Last month, officials said it would probably open in February because of unexpected heavy rains in November and other loose ends.

A story in The Sun Tuesday said health department inspectors had not yet been to the school. Inspectors had been to Runnymede, Dr. Surber said, although they had not yet approved the school for occupancy by that date.
