Families, retirees, school officials and dignitaries gathered under a late summer sky to cut the ribbon on the new $49.4 million Monomoy Regional High School today.
Under construction for 18 months, and with boxes still stacked from ceiling to floor in some classrooms, the guidance office and media center, school administrators say the gleaming facility will be ready when students arrive for the new school year Thursday, September 4. 700 boys and girls from Harwich and Chatham in grades 8 through 12 will attend Monomoy. Students from outside the two towns can apply under Massachusett's School of Choice option.
I shot some video during the community open house which followed the ceremony. You'll see the front of the school grounds still very much a construction zone as the old Harwich High is demolished and the landscaping takes shape. Enjoy.
