Heavy equipment is quickly eating up the old school. Pictured above is the state of the building as of Halloween evening.

For those interested in checking out the new school, there will be an open house on Wednesday, Nov. 9. Architects, designers and contractors will highlighting features including sustainable design, wood use and more from 4–8 p.m. at RSS.
