Built in 1922, the Old Challis Junior High/High School on Main Street was Not Up to All the Shaking and Rocking it Underwent During the Quake. Part of the Exterior Wall in the Northeast Corner Crumbled and the Entire Stone Front Exterior Began Separating From the Rest of the Building. Inside Plaster Crumbled and the Stairway Wobbled. Fortunately for Challis, the New High School Built to Accommodate the Anticipated Influx of Students Due to Development of the Cyprus Mine had Just Been Completed and High School Students were Scheduled to Begin Classes there Monday, October 31st. The Old Building was to Have Housed the Junior High. Instead All 360 Junior High and High School Students Moved into the New Facility and Began Classes on Tuesday.
