The demolition of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School’s 1200 building is scheduled to take place in the summer of 2024, immediately following the conclusion of the 2023/24 school year. Broward County Public Schools reached this decision in consultation with health and safety experts, and out of concern for the well-being of students and staff on campus.
We understand the urgency of this matter, but it is essential to prioritize safety above all else. In preparation for the demolition, crews will clean and clear the building, adhering to state and the Environmental Protection Agency’s landfill disposal regulations. As we continue to heal, we remain steadfast in our commitment to supporting the Marjory Stoneman Douglas community and will provide updates as information becomes available.
We are thankful to the students, parents and staff of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as well as the Parkland community for their patience and understanding.
