Construction Update Summer 2023

The High School and Middle School Complex will remain closed through August 20, 2023 to ensure the health and safety of the public. This closing includes all grounds including athletic fields, tennis courts, and track, as well as the pool. We are happy to report that all construction is running as scheduled.

At Walden Elementary School, a ventilation improvement project is underway in the 1952 (new ) wing. Classroom unit ventilators and flooring are being
replaced. Abatement is complete and new floor tile is being installed on the
second-floor 1952  wing. The exterior facade work (soffit repair) around the 1952 wing i s ongoing and will be completed over the next few weeks.

At the Middle and High School complex, the second phase of construction for the redesign of the entrance and exit, bus lanes, traffic lanes, walkways, and sidewalks has been underway. All underground drainage infrastructure has
been replaced and includes the installation of a new stormwater retention
system. The work also includes all-new parking lot lighting, the replacement of an underground natural gas line to the pool, and a septic tank.  Roadways are rough graded and the sidewalks for the Middle School entrance are complete. 

The new Athletic restroom facility at the High School is complete and will be functional for the upcoming fall sports season!


The Valley Central School District has eight buildings and a pole building/garage with 560,000 square feet that sit on 396 acres. The high school/middle school complex includes a natatorium with an Olympic-sized swimming pool.  The youngest of these buildings is just over 50 years old and the oldest is just about 100 years old.  

The buildings and grounds of the district are cared for by the members of our custodial and maintenance crew who work diligently to keep them in the best shape possible.
