The portable classrooms at St. Paul Academy and Summit School are being taken down after over a year of use. All classes that were held in portable classrooms are now held in respective rooms in the Thompson wing. This shift changes the way that students will interact with the school and their classes. Students no longer have to walk through the courtyard to get to classes and no longer have to walk through the athletic hallway to get to the lunchroom. This is a benchmark in the final completion of construction on the SPA campus. Now that students no longer have to walk through the athletic hallway there will be more free space to place bags during lunch. “Now that the portables are down I don’t have to walk as far for my classes,” junior Eddie Krasny said.

The initial setup cost for the trailers was $80,000 and they spent $3,500 a month for the trailers.”

The portables were a huge project for the SPA administration, Mark Dickinson; the Director of Operations said that the initial setup cost for the trailers was $80,000 and they spent $3,500 a month for the trailers. Director Dickinson mentioned, “It’s a challenge of, you know, you can buy them, but once we’re done with them, there’s not an instantaneous market.” There were 6 individual trailers driven in and set up on a level rock base. And after the trailers are driven out the base will be removed and the area will be restored to the original grass base.
