I have not been able to learn what the future holds for the school, and perhaps no one really knows. Apparently when it ceases to be used for education, the ownership reverts to the city of Rensselaer. Again, if you know what is happening on this topic, please inform us in the comments.
By the way, the new primary school is K-2. It takes K and 1 from old Monnett, and 2 from van Rensselaer School.
Because school is starting late this year, the swimming pool will close late. It will close after regular hours on August 26, but will reopen for Labor Day weekend, September 1, 2, & 3. Then it will shut down for the season.
