Parsons Schools Asks Public to Pick Up Bricks at District Office

 The razing of Washington School in Parsons is underway.

 The school building was built in 1954 and forced to close in 1999. Since that time, the building became a target for vandalism and had deteriorated significantly, prompting the USD 530 Board of Education to vote to demolish it. As a long time community landmark, many residents want to collect a brick from the building as a memento. This has created difficulties for crews working on the demolition. The Parsons District Office has made arrangements for the public to be able to pick up a brick at the district office at 2900 Southern street. The bricks will be available tomorrow and Friday. Bricks will NOT be given out at the school site.
