IUSD at 40: Turtle Rock Elementary School begins its magical run in 1970


Maybe you should write your own caption for this one because, frankly, we’re not sure what’s happening here. But we’re pretty certain this shot was taken in May 1973, which is three years after Turtle Rock Elementary School began its magical run, and the image was shared with us by the Irvine Historical Society. As we’ve noted in earlier posts, the society dutifully maintains a collection of historic photos, many of which were donated by the Irvine World News.

Do you have an old photo of the Irvine Unified School District you’d like to share? Send it to ianhanigan@iusd.org, along with some basic caption information, including names, dates and locations. We may publish it on the NewsFlash as part of our IUSD at 40 project. Images from IUSD’s first four decades will be posted on Thursdays.
