Barrington High School to close for renovations



— The Barrington School District is expected to close on Thursday, ending its three-year, $1.9 billion construction program.

The district said the school would close as of 7:00 a.m. for the completion of the project to open a new, new high school in the new district.

It will reopen as of 2:00 p.m., said John D. Barrera, the district’s president.

A large sign outside the district office reads, “The Barrington, Mass., High School.

You can take a trip to Barrington.”

The district closed the last of its projects in 2010 and reopened it in 2013.

The school is expected be the first of its kind in Massachusetts.

Barrera said the district had to put in some work to get the construction program ready.

Barrington has a population of less than 400 students and is about 20 miles northwest of Boston.
