The Magnolia Elementary School time capsule will be opened in 2025 as originally planned.
The time capsule will be dug up from the old school grounds this week and reburied at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School.
MES third- and fourth- graders buried the capsule in 2000, prior to the consolidation of MES and Buffalo Elementary School.
Students planned to open the capsule in 25 years but since the old school is for sale, staff decided to open it early.
According to School Administrative Manager Kathy Ross, several of the students who buried the time capsule have suggested that it be moved, but not opened.
Classmates from the 2000 class are asked to spread the word that the capsule will not be opened.
(The Herald News reported last week the time capsule would be unearthed Oct. 10.)
