Current Project Updates

Hardy Project:

** Important Note: The temporary stone dust path around the perimeter of the jobsite will be closed permanently starting June 15th.  There will be no pedestrian access around the site until the project is turned over at the end of July.

Phase 1 of construction is on schedule with the new school scheduled to open at the end of summer for the 2024-2025 school year! 

Phase 2 of the project is starting with the team preparation for demolition of the existing school. Movers will start taking materials out of the existing Hardy School, and fencing around the existing building and a portion of Hardy Road will be installed. 

Utility work on Hardy Road is forthcoming – please note that access to residences will remain throughout the work. 


Proceed to the Hardy project tabs for additional information.


Hunnewell Project:  Hunnewell is open! The First day of classes in the new building was 2/26/2024! Public tours and the dedication of the new Hunnewell School took place on May 18th during Wellesley’s Wonderful Weekend.

Past Project Updates

The Town of Wellesley is undertaking two separate elementary school building projects in order to meet the current and long-term needs of its students and address significant deficiencies at the Hardy, Hunnewell, and Upham schools. 

These two projects are being executed by the Town's School Building Committee (SBC) and its Permanent Building Committee (PBC), with the support of the School Committee and the Board of Selectmen. Planning is ongoing, and the earliest a new school would open is 2024.
