Superintendent Dr. Chris Clouet said Sunnyside School will open up on time, with no problems and a brand new roof in time for the 2017-18 school year. Despite asbestos being present in the building\u2019s roof deck, Clouet said the school is safe to open for the upcoming school year. \u201cThere\u2019s no cause for alarm, according to the law,\u201d said Clouet. The superintendent explained that there\u2019s a chance that a portion of the repairs might not be completed by September of this year. \u201cIf there\u2019s any part of the roof that is not completed, it will most likely be a part that is over the gymnasium and it will only be for the first few days of school,\u201d said Clouet. \u201cIt\u2019s possible, but not likely and if it does occur, school will operate as scheduled, but the gymnasium will be off-limits until it is complete.\u201d Mayor Mark Lauretti called this school roof repair process an \u201cold issue.\u201d \u201cI\u2019ve probably been a part of 15 roofs in 26 years,\u201d said Lauretti. \u201cI do this in my sleep.\u201d The city\u2019s supervisor of facilities, John Calhoun was unavailable for comment as of Thursday afternoon.
