Students say goodbye to John Nelson Elementary School

Rockford (WREX) — The Rockford community said goodbye to the John Nelson Elementary School on Saturday.

The school hosted an open house to give students an opportunity to reminisce one last time.

Former students and faculty shared memories of the school dating back to the 1960’s.

“I wish them all the best of luck. I hope that their school brings them new adventures, so that they can come back one day and do the same thing.” said former student Chris McMahon.

The school district has not determined a specific date for demolition.

The school will remain closed from the public.
