Ridgefield school staff finishes big building upgrades



Ridgefield — Maintenance staff has been busy this summer improving classrooms and learning spaces in Ridgefield School District buildings. The staff finished two large projects at Ridgefield High School and one at the middle school. Building 100 at the high school got a complete corridor remodel with new tile, carpeting and walls. Hazardous materials such as asbestos were removed. The high school gym was sanded and refinished for the first time in 15 years. At View Ridge Middle School, the STEM classroom was remodeled completely — removed and replaced — to make way for new Industrial Arts classes this fall. Finally, new red sunset maple trees were planted in front of Union Ridge Elementary School, replacing diseased sycamores that were removed last year.
