Just as long as they get the school year in and they do a proper job teaching them.\ \Someone should be responsible to make sure it gets open in time,\ said Peter Whelan, who has children going into kindergarten, second and third grade. ‘They shouldn't be cutting any corners.

Nor is Gengarelly too worried about his children's safety. “I would imagine if all else fails, perhaps the school board could take a suggestion from Ailish Bateman, who offered this sug- gestion at Mashashimuet Park when her mother was asked what the district should do if the building is not ready in time.
