It seems like it's becoming a bittersweet ritual here in Huntington Beach. Students going back to the grade schools to wander abandoned buildings and overgrown fields to say goodbye. Recently this paper did a story on students returning to Wardlow School just weeks before demolition began, to bid farewell. Other schools have also fallen by the wayside, and just last week I witnessed another event that saw students returning to the place where they grew up. Lamb Elementary on Yorktown Avenue is slated to be razed in several months.
