The community’s invited to head over to Murch Elementary this Thursday evening for an update on the school’s upcoming renovation and construction project. On December 17th at 6 p.m., DC Public Schools and the District Department of General Services will go over the search for a “swing space” where students will learn and play during the two-year project.
DCPS and DGS mentioned three potential locations during their most recent presentation (PDF) for the Murch School Improvement Team: In trailers on Murch grounds; split between Murch and Capital Memorial Church/Forest Hills Park; and at UDC. Over the past couple of days, the Chevy Chase listserv has lit up with the possibility of a fourth potential swing space: The trailers at Lafayette Elementary. Those are being used as a swing space for Lafayette’s renovation.
