WATERTOWN, S.D.–May 22nd is the last day of the school year in Watertown, and it will be the last day for Roosevelt Elementary.

The decision was made last November to close the school for good this spring, as the school district attempts to better utilize the space they have at other buildings.

Before Roosevelt closes for good, District Superintendent Dr. Jeff Danielsen says it’ll be open to the public for tours one last time….

Danielsen says no decision has been made on what to do with Roosevelt going forward.

He says they have heard from people interesting in buying the property.

Danielsen says Roosevelt will remain a pickup location for students boarding the bus this fall, but the building itself will not be open.
