It will still be there for the kids of Ayer and Shirley like it always has, it will just have a slightly different name. Log on to the school website for more info.

I, too, went to Ayer HS from 1980 to 1983 when I graduated. Made a ton of great friends who I still talk with frequently. I remember the asbestos fiasco very well as it happened my senior year...never got to go out on the "quad." I moved away and was not aware this was going on.
