Former Pitney Bowes HQ To Be Westover Relocation Site - Stamford Moms

The former Pitney Bowes headquarters building will be used as the relocation site for Westover Magnet Elementary School students and staff.

The Mold Task Force, which is made up of Stamford Public Schools, the Stamford Board of Education and the City of Stamford made the announcement on Wednesday. The school will remain closed for mold remediation for the remainder of the school year. Classes will begin in the newly renovated school space in the afternoon, on Tuesday, November 13. That day, all students will start the day at Chelsea Piers and then be transported to the new facility.

“I would like to recognize the herculean effort of the various city and community organizations over the past week to get Westover Elementary School relocated,” said Mayor David Martin. “I believe that this new location will provide a wonderful opportunity for teachers to educate and for students to learn in a cohesive educational community.”

According to the Stamford Board of Education, the new site is safe and secure and the site owner could complete the necessary renovation work quickly.

“I couldn’t be more pleased that we have reached our goal of moving our students and staff together to a safe learning environment as soon as possible,” said Superintendent Earl Kim. “Stamford is a community that supports one another in times of need, and this experience is a demonstration of just that. I am particularly grateful to the Mold Task Force members, Westover leaders and BLT, who have been working around the clock to make this happen, as well as all of our community partners who have provided support and services over the past week to serve our students’ needs.
