There's nothing like the eerie environs of long-abandoned school buildings. reddit user kheeley posted a really terrific photo gallery of Lakewood High School's "Old Building" last night.

The Lakewood School District is embarking on a $100 million demolition and construction project, which includes three elementary school buildings (Lincoln, Grant and Roosevelt) and the easternmost, oldest portion of Lakewood High School (pictured below in aforementioned eerie technicolor). Work begins in August with asbestos removal.

The new elementary schools are expected to open at the start of the 2016-17 school year; the new portion of LHS will open the following year.

If you're a parent in the district and you still need info on where your Lincoln, Grant or Roosevelt student might be attending school in the fall, NEOMG's Bruce Geiselman has the details.
