    Helene Grant School in New Haven is closed on Monday and Tuesday.

    The Helene Grant School, a preschool in New Haven. is closed as a safety precaution after pre-construction work on the building uncovered common, but elevated levels of a construction adhesive that requires the district to take action, according to school department officials.

    Helene Grant is scheduled to be demolished this summer and a new facility will be built as part of the district’s school construction program.

    Helene Grant School will be relocated to its temporary home at Amistad Academy a little earlier than planned until the new school is completed in 2015. School officials were hoping to get students back to class on Wednesday, but the classrooms might not be ready until Thursday.
