The former Webster and Washington Elementary buildings in the Clinton School district are planned to be completely demolished and cleaned up by early summer.

With Webster School down, and Washington School being cleared for demolition, Superintendent Dr. Jeff Holmes says things are moving right along and the end of the month is not an unrealistic time frame to see both no longer standing.

According to Dr. Holmes, once the process is finished, the properties will be turned to green space. That will be the final step for the contractors, whom, he explains are hired through the late spring months.

The district has allowed the public, who wants to, access to bricks from the building as mementos of the site. According to Dr. Holmes there is a pile of bricks available at the recently demolished Webster School and there will be some available once Washington is brought down.

He says a decision on the future of the properties has not been made, but once everything is finished, he anticipates the Board of Education sitting down to consider a decision.
