Construction has begun at the Ocosta Elementary School, actually destruction. The District plans to build the first vertical evacuation building in the nation, but it starts by demolishing the school’s “round building.” Last summer about 3,000 voters approved a levy to fund replacement of the Ocosta Elementary “Round building,” at the time administrators were looking at the vertical evacuation possibilities. Chuck Wallace with the Grays Harbor County Emergency Management Agency supplied these photos of the ‘renovations’ so far.
