Under the School

When school gets out next month, Mirah’s school will be torn down. It was built in the midst of the cold ward, so it has signs outside bragging about a bomb shelter. I have talked to the principal about this a few times, and at the end of the last PTA meeting, he offered to take a group of us down to check it out.


The entrance is in an unassuming utility closet that I have passed a bunch of times.

Down the stairs…

Into the boiler room.

Mr. Campbell tured off the fan, you see what it really is is giant tunnels under the school that work as air vents and tunnels to the classrooms. Once the fan was off, we all went in passed the equipment, and it all seemed very Freddy Kruger.

Then up and over to the vents that go under the school’s walkways.

It was pretty creepy down there, so I was ready to get out.
