IMPORTANT:  Starting on Saturday, December 19, 2015, topsoil being relocated back to the project site from DPW will be stockpiled in the area between the track at Sterling Field and the existing school building.  Access to Sterling Field will be through the school parking lot off of Flatbush Avenue.  The stockpiled topsoil will be fenced, seeded and treated with lime to contain any potential odor issues.  Hauling of the topsoil will not occur on school days but on Saturdays and during the Holiday Recess.  Attached is the plan associated with this activity.

Below are a few pictures of the construction.
