The Stoneham Building Committee scheduled a final site plan review for June 25 at 6 p.m in the High School Library.
The School Building Committee recently devised a traffic and parking plan for the Stoneham Middle School project, according to a letter from the School Building Committee.

Central Elementary School Plan "All traffic will approach the school from William Street up Pomeworth Street toward Washington Street," reads the letter. "We anticipate that the Board of Selectmen will declare Pomeworth to be one-way from William to Washington. "No parent or …

Proposed plans for the Stoneham Middle School project at the Central Elementary School site were presented at the committee's session Tuesday night.
The Stoneham School Building Committee reviewed a preliminary set of plans for a new Stoneham Middle School to be built at the current Central Elementary School site during its meeting Monday night. The Boston-based planning and architecture firm Tappé Associates presented conceptual plans for a fifth grade through eighth grade middle school that will replace the current elementary school. The plan to use the Central School was selected by the School Building Committee last month, over an alternate proposal to build the school at the Stoneham High School site. The plan would call for razing the Central School's existing gymnasium, leaving the school without a gym for two years until it is rebuilt as part of the new school. A wing of the …

Central Elementary School parents shared the concerns of their children with the Stoneham School Committee Thursday night while the Committee tried to allay the parents' worries about the Stoneham Middle School project.
The Stoneham School Building Committee’s decision to propose building the new Stoneham Middle School at the site of the current Central Elementary School site drew several voices of opposition from local parents at the committee's meeting Thursday night at Stoneham High School. Several parents, all of whom have children currently going to the Central School, were concerned the reorganization would cause emotional stress among students potentially being separated from their friends. The issue became such to children of the parents in attendance that some of them banded together during a snack period recently to take their own vote on how to approach the issue. While School Committee members were appreciative that the parents were in …

The Stoneham Building an School committees, as well as engineering firms, came together on Monday night to discuss the reconstruction and relocation of Stoneham Middle School to one of two proposed sites: reconstructing the current Middle School next to the existing Central Elementary School site, or building a new school next to Stoneham High School.
