Teachers and staff send students home through a human bridge on the last day of school at Miller Valley School in Prescott Thursday morning.
PRESCOTT - Moments before the 12:30 p.m. dismissal Thursday, May 21, Washington Traditional fourth-grader Trinity Ogle captured a last photograph of the oldest school in the state on its last day.

A bittersweet moment.

Across town at Miller Valley Elementary, another school that as of 12:30 p.m. dismissed its final batch of kindergarten through fourth-grade students, a big brother comforted his teary-eyed sister as they exited the school playground for the last time.
