HAGERSTOWN - Renovations to the Washington County Public Schools central office lobby have made the area more secure and more inviting, schools spokesman Will Kauffman said.
The $75,000 project began in October and was completed last week. Some work remains, like the installation of a flat-screen wall-mounted television, additional lighting and the display of the school system's logo, Director of Maintenance and Operations Michael Peplinski said.
He also expects student artwork to be displayed in the lobby of the central office at 820 Commonwealth Ave. in Hagerstown.
"It didn't feel very homey," Peplinski said of the space that was smaller and didn't have much natural light before the renovations. "The light was terrible. There was nobody to greet you."
