A Rachel Contractors employee estimated the demolition of the school will take 4-6 weeks depending upon the weather. The school was destroyed by a tornado that hit Wadena June 17. Work on a new school is scheduled to begin April 1, 2011. The new facility is expected to be ready for classes when the 2012-13 school year begins.
