(from left) Lowell teachers, move records from building. Entrance was closed in j 1954 because light quake loosened masonry above and made it hazardous. hazard. At the same time the shop buildings were built. Gym, shop and 13 portables are all that remain In use now that the main turreted structure has been condemned. Lowell JK High School Being Cleared as Hazard Continued from Page 1 Campbell St. The structure was closed after an engineering team dubbed it a "very poor" frsk in 1953. During the emergency bocrd of education meeting on Friday. when it was decided a barricade should be built around lov.ell, James Rockafellow, principal of Pfescott asked: "What are people m my area going to say if they see Lowell has been fenced off and the old building at our school hasn't been?" ! ' Moving fast to permit continuation of classes at least on a limited basis for all Lowell students, Dr. Spencer D. Ben-how, the schools' business manager, brought crews to the scene yesterday to move equipment, build the barricades and make necessary alterations. Additional lavatories are be ing installed in the gymnasium, one of the safe buildings DOORS BEING CUT I With entry to the 1 school grounds hampered by the barricades, doors are being cut into the Myrtle St. side of portable buildings already on the grounds. The three additional portables will be moved in on Monday. I Cafeteria facilities axe in the building that has been closed, so arrangements have been made to bring sandwich and milk lunches to the Lowell children each noon. The food will probably, come from McClymonds, Dr. Benbow said. The ninth graders will prob ably move to McClymonds on Monday. In the meantime, plans are being made there to con tinue classes until 4 p.m. to accommodate the newcomers. The cafeteria will be utilized both as a girl's gym and as an eating place, due to the' added student load. Lowell will operate on a "minimum day" from 9 a.m. to 1:40 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, Berg said. An activity program will replace regular classes. MODIFIED CLASSES By Wednesday, class work will be resumed on what Berg calls a "modified and restricted basis." He said that shop and home economics courses may have to be eliminated due to the shortage of space. The ninth graders going to McClymonds will be unable to enroll in shop courses, as they are already filled, Berg said. "The move is going ?t erowd things f at both McClymonds and Lowell. We do not expect to have double sessions, however. The big hardship will b on the teachers who will have no place for conferences anfl work other than actual teaching," Berg said. NO NEW DAMAGE ' McClure reported late yesterday that he had made thorough checks of the Castlemont High School. Crocker Highlands. Rockridge, Emerson, Mcrritt Campus of Oakland Junior College, Santa Fe, Hoover Junior High, Clawson, Prescott. Lincoln and Laney Division of Oakland Junior College in the past two days and had found no new damage. He said the survey will continue until all schools of the city have been covered. Lowell School, finished . in 1928, was classed as a "poor" earthquake risk in a 1953 engineering survey.
