Ongoing Construction at Oakcrest High School Delays First Day of School

The serious construction kinks at Oakcrest High School have official hit a snag. Oakcrest will have a delayed opening as the school will not be ready to open on Tuesday. 

Superintendent John Keenan notified School District Staff through email Friday afternoon that despite the best efforts of the contractors, the school is just shy of completion.

Serious construction over the past couple months has been the center of attention for parents and staff making some question if the school was safe to even start on time.

Faculty is told to report on September 1st and all students will report on September 6th, according to the Superintendent. Oakcrest will have to use the two emergency days, May 26th and May 30th that were built into the calendar in order to make up for the delay. Students will also have to report on June 14th which is the last day of school and graduation.

It is still unknown whether the teachers who have been working for the past 2-years without a contract will be starting school on August 30th as discussions are being had regarding work stoppage. 

Cedar Creek and Absegami High School staff will still report on Monday. A revised calendar for Oakcrest as released by the Superintendent is below.
