Welcome to our web page dedicated to keeping you updated about the Shepaug Agriscience Lab Renovation & Construction Project! We are working with our team of architects and engineers to create this exciting addition to our school in a manner that will present the least disruption to our students. Please visit this site regularly for updates, and feel free to call or email me if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.

The pre-bid meeting for phase two projects was held on Thursday, September 13. The purpose of this is to provide potential bidders with important information about the process, which in turn will make the bidding process more effective. Exciting times ahead!

Welcome Back to school!
Construction/renovation is an exciting event at Shepaug, but let’s face it, it comes with some challenges! Our current student drop off and pick up plan will be adjusted during the year as the construction project evolves.


When dropping off your student in the morning, Officer Innaimo will direct you around the circle (by the pool doors).

Drivers must pull up to the sidewalk leading to the front of the building for drop off. Pool doors will not be accessible for the foreseeable future.

Students should remain in the vehicle until the car pulls up to the sidewalk leading to the front entrance.


Students will be dismissed out of the front entrance.

The students will meet their drivers at the drop off location.

Drivers are asked to remain in their vehicles.

On the first day of school, you will see our Dean of Students, Matt Perachi, and our new SRO, Rich Innaimo, directing you around the circle outside the pool doors to drop-off location.

We are working diligently with our contractors to create safe drop-off and pick-up protocols for our students. For safety reasons, we ask that ALL students are dropped off and picked up in the manner shown above. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Demolition is underway and asbestos abatement is completed, readying our school for a Fall 2018 official groundbreaking ceremony. All but one of the science labs, the former auto shop, construction shop, and the craft room were demolished, abated, and prepared for renovation in Phase One of the Agriscience/Science lab project.  Phase Two will be ongoing throughout the school year.  Temporary science labs have been created to ensure that instruction will not be impacted by this important work. Please consult our web page for the new Construction News feature, which will provide regular, updated information regarding the Agriscience/Science Lab Construction Project.
