During a joint meeting of the Newtown Board of Education and Public Buildings and Site Commission on Wednesday, town officials learned more about the possible design of a new Sandy Hook Elementary School. The Design Team presented the so-called Main Street Scheme at the meeting.
The classroom wings extend off a circulation spine, with defined exterior courtyards buffered by trees. The design team says the building curves along the south edge of the site, to create an embrace as you approach the building. Public and semi-public spaces are in the front of the building to act as a security buffer to classrooms.
The Pre-K and Kindergarten rooms have their own entrance near a smaller children's playground.
