UNITY, New Hampshire — After many delays, the new Unity Elementary School is open and is celebrating the event.
The school opened to students on Sept. 8. An official grand opening is scheduled for Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m.
In 2010, the old school became the first one in state history to be ordered closed for fire code violations. Voters approved bonds for the new school.
In 2012, the state Fire Marshal's Office issued a stop-work order on the building because a complete set of plans had not been submitted for approval. An architect said numerous design changes slowed down the plans.
Work resumed this year under a new firm.
