So spend more money to think about if you should spend more money on keeping a closed school? Only our gov't could think like this.

The school is an eyesore to Shingle Creek community. Windows are broken, grass growing through the asphalt, empty drug bags, litter, etc. Tear it down and add to the park. It is not an example of beautiful architecture, look to Loring School if you want to see a beautiful school on the Northside.

Why are they saving this waste of space? It is not architecturally significant. If they need the space, keep it. If not, tear it down!

I also live in the neighborhood and walk my dog past this whimsical 1950's gem each day.. I'm a fan of the colorful windows and swooping roof. Too bad the school district couldn't partner with a developer to find an adaptive reuse. Live/work studio space for artists. Or a nonprofit looking to teach neighborhood kids about nature.. how not to vandalize or simply how to use the trash cans provided by the park board... Well, a girl can dream can't she!
