The Edgewater Park Township School District will soon begin the next phase of building renovations associated with the Bond Referendum.  Workers will begin removing ceilings in the halls of Magowan School around January 26, 2017.  The work will take place after school hours and on weekends.  You can expect to see some construction vehicles in the neighborhood and hear a limited amount of noise associated with the projects.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  Please don't hesitate to contact my office if you encounter any problems or have any questions.
