The New School houses two galleries in the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, an award-winning design by Lyn Rice Architects, measuring more than 4,000 square feet and including plasma screens, a rotating wallpaper design, and an innovative student critique area.

Filled year-round with exhibitions of work by outside artists and designers, faculty, and students, our galleries are an important downtown destination for art and design programming. Students and faculty also present their work in other on-campus and satellite venues throughout the city.

The Innovation Center, located on the 6th floor of the Albert and Vera List Academic Center, is one of the most technologically progressive collaboration spaces on campus. It offers resources such as the Learning Space Lab, printers, conference rooms, huddle spaces with air media display, laptop checkout, and community lockers.

The Riverhead Central School District confirmed Friday that pepper spray was used during a fight between two high school students that took place in a school hallway.

School district officials say the fumes from that pepper spray also impacted security guards and students who were nearby. They say those who had trouble breathing were monitored and received medical attention at the scene.

The district says the student who sprayed the pepper spray was taken into police custody.

The incident follows another one within the district where two knives and a BB gun were confiscated in June at Riverhead Middle School.

All areas affected by the pepper spray were cleaned and classes resumed as usual.

Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District officials Monday announced that Santa Monica High School, also known as Samohi, will be closed Tuesday due to a power outage.

The outage, caused by a “major blown fuse,” has been under repair since Saturday morning, district officials said, but the power is not expected to be restored until late Tuesday morning.

“Santa Monica High School will be closed for classes… We are asking that all Samohi students stay home for the day,” according to a district announcement sent out on Monday evening from Superintendent Dr. Antonio Shelton.

“It is unfortunate that this situation has a snowball effect requiring the loss of a school day; however, we are unable to have school without lighting, including in restrooms, heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC), no phones, other electrical needs, and no use of the kitchen to provide food services for students,” Shelton said.

Samohi student athletes will receive instructions from their coaches on arriving at school for evening games, which will remain scheduled, the district stated.

Students attending other schools in the district will have a regular school day.

Classes are expected to resume on Wednesday, Sept. 6.
