District to delay demolition for a year

The current science building will remain standing for about a year after its replacement opens. The new elementary school won't be open until the fall of 2022, so the district needs a place to prepare elementary school meals.

Once a new science and technology building is completed, it will be another year or so before the old one comes down.

USD 257 board members decided to hold off on demolition of the science building until after the new elementary school opens.

The reason: food.
