It was a morning to celebrate on Feb. 28 at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School in the Harborfields Central School District, as Principal Mary Williams welcomed students, administrators and guests to a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the school’s new main entrance, which has been under construction and closed off since last June.
“We wanted to get our arrival and dismissal as back to normal as possible, without having to use alternative entrances and exits, so even though there's a little bit more work and wiring yet to do inside, they were able to provide us access during the day,” Williams said. “Once the doors were open again, we were excited about inviting our students, visitors and parents back in through the front doors. The ribbon cutting was really to say, ‘We're back in business.’ It was really great seeing how excited the students were, the look on their faces was priceless. They loved walking in and seeing all the new changes happening.”
