McKinley Elementary School in 1948. – Eastman Studio postcard

School Location Change Is Made
May 19, 1948

Drastic changes in the location of the new elementary school have been made.

Following a meeting of the school trustees last week, it was stated that the proposed site on Fifth street was not suitable because of drainage problems.

Trustees are now investigating possibilities of an extension of Lincoln school site on lower Main street. There would be between 13 and 15 acres available, which would be as much land for playgrounds as at the old McKinley and Washington areas.

The new proposal will be submitted to the Lassen county planning commission for approval, and will be referred to the state department of schoolhouse planning.
