  1. I went to School #4 in the ’60’s. I was sent to school #20 in 6th grade, I was under the impression that the roof had collapsed the day after school let out. It might have just been decommissioned. Would like to know what actually happened. We lived on Western Ave, I walked to school!

  2. I also went there in the 60s. I lived on Dana Ave. We walked to school, home for lunch, back after lunch, and walked home again after school. Mrs. Sennett was the Principal then. I heard the roof fell in during the summer months.
