Families and community members gathered at Lynnwood Elementary on Thursday night to bid the school farewell.
The existing 1962 school will be replaced beginning this summer, thanks to a 2014 voter-approved Capital Construction Bond. The new school will be constructed on the current Lynnwood Elementary site and replace the existing building. The school will transition to the former Alderwood Middle School, which will be their temporary location for the 2017-18 school year while the new school is under construction. The new Lynnwood Elementary will open in September 2018.
School administrators hosted a “Farewell Open House” on Thursday, inviting families, alumni and community members to come say goodbye to the school. Old class photos were on timeline displays. The school’s Glee Club also performed.
