School district officials say the school will be ready for students by Spring 2013.

Maybe the WREC can use the old building on this site since it will be closing this Dec. Why not use our available resources rather than buying another property and using more tax payers dollars.

Eric - the current McDonald school is to be demolished and is not going to be available for sale. The property can not sustain 2 operational facilities at one time. I can appreciate you thinking outside the box though.

Can anyone tell me what the design concept is for the new school because when I look at it from the north side on McGlynn Rd, it looks like 3 medium sized near identical appearing warehouses, I guess all connected by ground level hallways.

That is a good question Bob. It is hard to see at McDonald but if you go to the new Davis Elementary in Upper Southampton, you will see essentially what McDonald is to look like. The are essentially the same building as they were designed at the same time by the same architect. There may be some subtle differences but it should give you a better idea of the end product being built.

The new school looks great, however, could we get the construction people to be more mindful of the people who actually live in the neighborhood? There is trash all along the back of McDonald off of Citation Lane. The last time they cut the grass back there was at least July, there's a fence laying on the ground, not that you could see it from how high the grass has grown, and they use the tractor trailers for equipment, but then never put it back...I've had a ladder and God knows what else sitting along the side of my house pretty much all summer. Also,the 5am wake up calls by construction deliveries by flatbeds being unloaded by forklifts and other deliveries in the middle of the night haven't been too pleasant, either! I really hate to complain b/c I know once it's all over, the school will be beautiful, and my kids are going to get to enjoy it, but do I really have to live like this until it's all over? I did contact the School District today about these things, but, I just needed to vent when I saw this.

I am sure the Township would like to hear your complaints. They are probably itching for a reason to go into McDonald and shut it all down... Give the Township a call and tell them what is going on over there. They will make the contractors and the district clean it up.

Itching for a reason to shut it all down, Mr. Krenshaw? According to your previous postings on other articles our township officials are above that type of pettiness (as I believe our elected officials in Warminster should be). I am sure you meant they will be happy to investigate a complaint, and take any action that may warranted, right?

I am DEFINITELY not trying to shut anything down. In my opinion, that's only hurting the staff and students of McDonald, as well as the neighbors for having to put up with all of the construction headaches. I'm just looking for a little consideration from the construction company. If I thought it would "shut it all down" I wouldn't say anything....I hope my comment doesn't get taken out of context....

Perhaps I was being a bit too facetious... Part of the Solution and cged - My intent was the Township would probably be happy to receive your call and help you out, especially with the noise at inappropriate times. There is actually a noise ordinance which can be enforced as well as something with mowing. I do want to reiterate I am not involved with the local government in any capacity where I have the power to "shutdown" anything.
