Demolition at the former King Elementary School will start next week, and bricks from the school will be available to the public starting Dec. 2. A limited number of bricks will be in a pile outside the construction fence, first come first served. Demolition of the school, 1306 S. Court St., is expected to begin next Tuesday, Nov. 26.
Closing and tearing down King Elementary School is part of the board-approved facilities plan from 2014. King Elementary School closed after the 2016-17 school year, and students who attended King now attend Washington Elementary School.
