Residents are invited to a forum on Wednesday February 10 to discuss the future of Ipswich’s Winthrop Elementary School. The forum will be held in Room A of the Ipswich Town Hall from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Ipswich has received approval from the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) to undertake a feasibility study to renovate or construct a new Winthrop School. The Ipswich School Building Committee has engaged the architectural firm of Eastman Perkins/ Design Partnership of Cambridge to undertake the feasibility study. Public input is being sought on a variety of aspects of this project including grade configurations (allocation of grades between Winthrop and Doyon) or building a single elementary school; site locations (existing or other); elements in the school that addresses present and future needs; and what is important to the community in this new project. The forum is sponsored by the School Building committee and is the first of several public forums planned for this project.
