The Ottumwa Community School District is now accepting bids for the Agassiz Elementary School building.

The building will no longer be of use once the Pickwick Early Childhood Center opens this August.

Thursday evening, the district hosted an open walk through of the school for prospective buyers.

The district’s Building and Grounds Director Chuck Bray welcomed guests and answered questions.

Bray says before Thursday's open house, he’d already given a few tours of the building.

“We’ve had a range of interests, just everything from, you know, keeping it an elementary or a educational facility to possibly being apartments,” said Bray.

Prospective buyers have until Monday at 3 p.m. to submit their bids.
