The Springs School has no more space, not even for Alec Baldwin’s baby grand

As the community continues to mull the painful details of a possible expansion, conditions grow worse inside the school at 48 School Street. It’s gotten so bad, according to East Hampton Star, that when Alec Baldwin donated a baby grand piano to the school, administrators had no choice but to auction it off because there was simply no room for it. Some other highlights: The art room is so packed that teachers have resorted to storing materials on mobile carts and pushing them around from class to class. Certain classrooms have been divided into three smaller rooms with Sheetrock walls, some with no windows and no direct door access. And staff member have taken on their own sacrifices — the school psychologist, for instance, is working out of a closet and the social worker’s office used to be a foyer.[EHS] — Cathaleen Chen
