4 IN OUR SCHOOLS NOVEMBER 14-20, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER Education, he said. Plans for the project were scaled back over the summer to meet a $45 million bud- get. School Committee Chairwoman Rose Marie Cipriano said she is delighted with the plans and is antic- ipating breaking ground next April. "This is the right time. Everything is correct as to where we should be," she said. Most importantly for Cipriano, she said that each of the schools will be given a level playing field as far as building conditions. She said the sentiment that one area of Smithfield is given better treatment than others will be negated after construction. Each school's plans call for an added learning common for flexible teaching spaces used by all different grades integrated into larger public areas, such as a library. "We are one Smithfield," Cipriano said. Committee members all agreed the designs and plans are fantastic, saying they represent an excel- lent way to show people what the schools will look like. Committee member Richard Iannitelli said the collaboration between architects, administrators, staff and students has been great. From gymnasiums and art rooms to common spaces and "maker spac- es," Iannitelli said every elementary student will be impacted by the changes. "Most students are going to be affected by some new construc- tion or new design everywhere," Iannitelli said. Brown said while the project is on schedule, it is critical to keep mov- ing through the process and to have someone engaged in construction for the summer. He said all schools will receive a double-door entry system that requires visitors to enter through the administrative office before entry into the school. Additional renderings and design plans are available for viewing at www.smithfield-ps.org under the school construction tab. Cipriano said anyone interested in the project should watch or attend committee meetings, which are uploaded to the town's website, www.smithfieldri. com . Here is a summary of the latest plans: Anna McCabe Elementary School The most complex of all three schools, Brown said the majority of the work will be done at McCabe Elementary School, 562 Putman Pike. Main upgrades to McCabe include a new music room, media center, and updates in the cafeteria. Brown said discussions are ongo- ing on how to best plan the student drop-off and pick-up zones, but Supt. Judy Paolucci said the current separation of staff parking and stu- dent drop-off zones will work best. Significant changes in the plans switch from complete masonry material to half masonry and half metal paneling in the gym addition to lower costs of the work. The interior courtyard will be transformed from a paved parking lot to a green space with "a lot of potential for further development," Brown said. LaPerche Elementary School Brown said not much has changed since previous updates for the Renderings for ANNA MCCABE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL show an addition in the rear to accomodate a new gymnasium, media center, and early childhood class- rooms.
