One Last Look: Virtual Visit to Edison Building

Dear Edison families,

It is exciting to be moving forward toward a new building for Edison Elementary School, thanks to voters’ approval of the 2018 bond measure.

It is also bittersweet, as we say farewell to the school building where generations of students have learned and thrived since 1926. After 94 years of service, the Edison building is the oldest and in the poorest seismic and facility condition among the district’s schools, but it also holds an important place in the memory of thousands of past and present Edison students.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s not possible to hold a traditional farewell event for student and staff alumni and current Edison families to visit the old school building one last time.

We’ve created a virtual tour instead, so families, staff and neighbors who have been a part of Edison’s history over the past 94 years can take one last look.

Press play to take a five-minute farewell tour through the Edison building, just as it was on one day this spring after students and staff left to learn at home.

The building will be deconstructed later this year, and construction of the new building will begin in early 2021 to be completed by summer 2022. Stay tuned, as we’ll share continuing updates.
