Caption Guemes Island School
Description Guemes Island School, District 21. School appears abandoned. The Guemes Island School District consolidated with the Anacortes School District in 1948, with only grades K-3 remaining on Guemes Island. The older children were then bussed to Anacortes. The 3-15-1959 SEATTLE TIMES article on Guemes, written by veteran reporter Lucille McDonald, reported that 33 children crossed over to Anacortes each day. In 1962, the Guemes Island School closed for good.
