Despite Pandemic, Construction to Commence on Replacement Pentucket Regional Schools

Construction trailers will be located at the front of the existing parking lot at Pentucket Regional High School, and construction on the new middle-high school building will take place behind the existing high school building.

Work is progressing on building a new Pentucket Regional Middle and High School despite the COVID-19 pandemic with construction trailers arriving next week.

The temporary trailers and site signage are scheduled to be placed during the week of April 27 near the front of the current high school parking lot. Temporary fencing to mark off the construction area is scheduled to be installed beginning May 11.

Pentucket school Superintendent Justin Bartholomew said, “Fortunately, the ongoing pandemic has not impacted this project, and at this time everything remains on track.” He added officials have been working closely with partners to keep the project moving.

The Towns of Groveland, Merrimac and West Newbury approved the $146.2 million project at town meetings and town elections last spring. Up to $52.7 million of the project cost will be paid by the Massachusetts School Building Authority. The project is expected to be completed during the spring of 2022.
