Two Moore Schools in Shambles

By Jim Killackey Published: May 4, 1999
Moore's Technology Center, where workers maintain and repair the district's computers and high-tech educational tools, was a total loss.

Bonds said four Moore schools were open Tuesday night and will remain open as shelters for displaced Moore residents.

Those schools are Bryant Elementary School, 9400 S Bryant; Earlywine Elementary School, 12800 S May; Central Junior High School, 400 N Broadway; and Moore High School, 400 N Eastern.

One injured Moore school employee was Charlotte Jefferies, whose Eastlake patio home was destroyed.

A widow for 11 years, Jefferies is language coordinator for the Moore district. She and her cocker spaniel, Poppy, were pulled by other neighbors from the rubble of her home.

"It's gone. It's all gone. I don't know what you can do in a situation like this!

"When the house went, I choked on insulation," Jefferies said. A sofa landed on top of her. "I have a strong need to go back, but I know that there is nothing there," she said from Graceway Baptist Church, 1100 SW 104.
