Green Fields School reopening with new owner

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - A school on Tucson’s northwest side that abruptly closed after 85 years will be reopening its doors to students.

Serei Kay, the director of special projects at Green Fields School, confirmed that classes are scheduled for Monday, Oct. 21.

The school, which originally opened in 1933, informed parents on July 9 that it would close immediately. Parents were left scrambling to find schools for their students for the school year, which was less than a month away.

In the meantime, an Arizona nonprofit called Accelerated Elementary and Secondary Schools made an offer to buy the school, which is located at 6000 N. Camino de La Tierra.

An order authorizing the sale for a purchase price of $2.3 million was approved in bankruptcy court on Oct. 9.

The school could not provide an enrollment number for the reopening.
