Unforeseen glitches have left construction of the Manteo Elementary addition about a month behind schedule, but school officials say contractors are working hard to make up the time.
“The progress may not be sufficient enough to meet the targeted completion date,” Dare County Schools Director of Facilities Jim Winebarger said. “That’s a very real possibility.”
The $3.15 million addition was slated to be done by Dec. 29. School officials were banking on the few weeks of winter vacation to allow for a smooth transition into the new space.
