Crews Cutting Wires at McDonogh No. 11 School
Employees from Cox were cutting wires that led to the building not long ago. At least one employee of the state's chief contractor was on hand as well.
To my knowledge, Orleans Parish School Board still owns the property. Even though Priestley Charter has vacated the building, I was surprised to see wires getting cut today since the UMC Board's consultant noted publicly last Wednesday that site preparation was getting way far out ahead of the financing available to pull off the proposed hospital facility.
There are currently no plans to save or move the 1879 school building, as far as I'm aware. The building is slated to be demolished.
