Demolition at Shields Elementary set for August

July 27, 2022

Demolition of Shields Elementary School is set to begin in early to mid-August, said Cape Director of Special Projects Brian Bassett.

After 55 years of operation, the old school closed in April when the new Lewes Elementary School opened to students just across Sussex Drive.

The grounds of the former school are being cleared to make way for construction of the district’s third middle school, set to open in the 2024-25 school year.
