Construction at Wells High School

Please check here regularly for information about the Wells High School construction project that will impact teachers and participants in adult education programs. Remember that ultimately all the inconveniences will be worth it when we have a brand new, improved high school building.

Beginning in September please note:

  • Part of the parking lot closest to the school building is blocked off. You may have to park further away than you are used to.
  • The circular drive is not accessible.
  • The main entrance to the high school will be on the parking lot side of the building, doors 32 and 33. These are the doors you will use in the afternoon and evening when you come for your adult education classes.
  • After entering the building, follow the hallway and turn right at the next hallway to go to both the adult education office and to get to your classroom. Signs will be posted for your convenience.
