Thursday marks the beginning of the end for the oldest section of Sevastopol School. June 10th is when the demolition of the school’s original 1924 three-story building will begin after crew completed the asbestos abatement process in recent days. Since the district hosted its last in-service days prior to Memorial Day, the building’s 1946 addition and a connector hallway have already been completely demolished. Sevastopol Superintendent Kyle Luedtke says the demolition of the 1924 building will take approximately 4-6 weeks to complete not just because it is a bigger building, but some of the other extra steps that need to be taken.
People are allowed to watch portions of the demolition take place, but are asked to stay behind the fence set up by the construction crews and to be considerate of other drivers and property owners near the school. Luedtke added the entire construction project remains on target so the first day of school can take place on September 7th. The district will sell the demolished building’s old bricks for a dollar apiece at a later date.
