Current Wellington Middle School note: PSD intends to re-purpose the current Wellington Middle School building when construction of the new school is completed. It is likely that this building will be converted to an intermediate school, housing grades 4 and 5 from both the Eyestone Elementary and Rice Elementary boundary areas. As more information becomes available about this potential reuse of the building, it will be shared with the Wellington community.
