OLD NORTH VISTA SCHOOL BUILDING BEING EMPTIED BEFORE DEMOLITION

Brenda Harrison
Editor

Thursday, June 5, was bittersweet for the students, faculty and staff at North Vista Elementary. They were excited about summer vacation, but a little sad that it was their last school day in the old building that has served this community for more than 60 years. “I’ve been here for 18 years,” commented Principal Sharon Dixon, sharing her emotions at leaving the old building. When school starts back on Aug. 18, North Vista students and faculty will have a new “home” in a spacious state-of-the-art facility which is under construction behind the old school. As students exited the building on Thursday morning, they saw a moving van parked in front of the school.

Mrs. Dixon said that staff was expected to pack up their resource materials by the end of the day on Friday so it could be moved and stored in the new school. For the next three days, which began on Monday, the school furniture and equipment would be moved out to be used as needed in other schools. The new school will have new desks, cafeteria tables, seats, and other furniture and equipment. “The building is to be emptied by June 11 so that abatement can begin,” Dixon explained. The old school must come down to make room for another wing on the new school as well as parking. Also during the summer, the grounds will be landscaped with green space for an inviting welcome to the new North Vista Elementary in late summer.
