1942-November14: School Changes Set for County H.M. Roland, superintendent of schools, announced late yesterday afternoon that the new Sunset Park school is now complete except for the installation of radiators and the motor for the furnace room.

The students who live in the Maffitt homes, units built for shipyard workers and their families, will refill the old Sunset Park school, immediately upon the transfer of the students now in that school over to the new building.
The old Sunset Park school, a six-room building, which has housed over 500 pupils, will not be able to hold all of the students coming from the Maffitt homes. Mr. Roland stated "We hope," he said "to find places for the overflow through transportation into Wilmington, in the Tileston, the William Hooper, and Lake Forest schools.
Most of the schools in the county, Mr. Roland continued, now already have an enrollement of over 40 students for each teacher.
