Smith Elementary in Oshkosh To Close


It’s becoming a sign of the times; an aging school building is deemed too old to fix, and now must be closed. That was the decision Wednesday night as the Oshkosh School board voted  7-0 to close Smith Elementary. Students will now transfer to Jefferson Elementary School. A letter was also sent to families that the school board would discuss the future of the building. The letter stated that, although the building is safe,  its long term outlook looked bleak. According to the school district, repairs to fix the school would have cost at least $3.7 million. The School was built in 1895,  expanded in 1929 and had a gymnasium and two classrooms added in 1996.
