Throughout the summer in the 10 Westfield Public Schools, more than 902,000 square feet of classrooms, hallways and stairwells and 75 acres of playground areas and fields have been readied by the district’s custodial and maintenance crews.

Maintenance projects in the district moved beyond the classrooms with gym floors resurfaced, new boilers installed, ceiling tiles and lockers replaced, and sidewalks repaired preparing for the opening of school on Wednesday, September 3.
