Glenview Elementary makes a gleaming comeback


From being almost entirely torn down in 2016, Glenview Elementary School is back after a major rebuild and will be ready to open its doors when students and teachers are allowed to return from distance learning, according to the Oakland Unified School District, which unveiled the gleaming buildings on Friday. The new school features larger classrooms, a redesigned library and a multi-use room with a stage and a basketball court that has roll-up doors to allow for indoor-outdoor events.
