State approves repair funds for elementary school

The total budget for this project is $2.3 million

GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The state has approved the funds for a repair project for an elementary school in Greenfield.

The state’s School Building Authority is giving Green River elementary school 1.6 million dollars to repair their school. This money is part of Greenfield’s proposed Accelerated Repair Project which will replace the school’s roof and windows, and also replace the school’s boiler.

The total budget for this project is 2.3 million dollars. Work is expected to begin in the spring and continue into the fall.

22News called the Superintendent’s office of Greenfield Public Schools and the Principal of Green River Elementary. They were unavailable for an interview and declined to comment.

This is the second grant given to the town of Greenfield from the Massachusetts School Building Authority. In 2011, the town was the recipient of an MSBA Green Repair Program which replaced the roof, windows, and boilers of Four Corners School.
