The original Dressel School was brought back into the school district in 2011. The building was then demolished in 2015 to make way for the new Dressel School. It was dedicated in a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, August 2 followed by an open house from 4:30 to 6:30 that was open to the public.
The original plaque for the dedication of the first Dressel School was stored in the SCHS archives for many years. The Society has given the plaque to Lindbergh Schools and it will be placed in the new Dressel School in the main meeting room.
