Modular Expected Later This Year to Eliminate McLean HS Trailers

McLean High School plans to have its new modular ready by mid-December.

Ellen Reilly, the school’s principal, wrote in a newsletter to families today that the school’s tennis courts will close next Monday, July 13, so that the trailers can occupy the space.

Until the new modular is ready later this year, the trailers will need to stay on the tennis courts, she said.

Plans to address the school’s overcrowding with a proposed boundary adjustment have stalled as the Fairfax County School Board grapples with COVID-19 challenges.

The modular will replace 14 trailers at the school in an effort to alleviate some of the overcrowding issues, Elaine Tholen, the school board member who represents the Dranesville District, previously said.

Reilly said that she will keep families updated on the construction progress
