Owego Elementary School Demolition Begins

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Heavy equipment started tearing down the flood-damaged Owego Elementary School this morning.

Crews from Gorick Construction are expected to work to remove the old school building over the next couple of weeks.

The school opened in 1965. It was last used in early September 2011, when the flood disrupted classes just as the new school year was getting underway.

The district plans to build a new school at the site. Administrators say they hope the new Owego Elementary School will be able to open in September 2015.

In the meantime, Owego Elementary students will continue to travel to West Corners for classes in a school building owned by the Union-Endicott School District.
