Whatcom Middle School’s community grand opening and ribbon cutting is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 1 at noon at the school, 810 Halleck St.
There will be tours offered right after the ceremony until 6 p.m. Parking is limited, so people are asked to carpool, walk or take public transportation as much as possible. Halleck Street in front of the school will be available for parking; people are asked to avoid parking in the Bellingham Municipal Court lot.
