The city and the Orange Unified School District are reviewing a plan that would restore and save from demolition two buildings on the Villa Park Elementary School campus. The plan--conceived by a citizens preservation group--involves the city leasing the buildings from the Orange Unified School District for a nominal fee. The city would then in turn sublet the buildings to the Villa Park Elementary School Restoration Corp., which would oversee the restoration project.

The foundations have dry rot and are sinking and the foundations, floors and walls have mold on them. The district has 10 weeks to move the portables, grade the sites, renovate the portables and reset them on new foundations.

To improve safety at Serrano Elementary School, the City Council has placed tighter restrictions on vehicles using Serrano Avenue in front of the school. The council voted to prohibit motorists from stopping their cars within a 500-foot area of Serrano Avenue facing the school. That area was already designated as a no-parking zone. City Manager Fred Maley told the council that Serrano Principal Karren Inman had requested additional traffic restrictions.

Teachers at Cerro Villa Middle School have backed off supporting a controversial program that allowed them to extend teaching days and "bank" the time for workshops. Principal Fran Roney had stopped the program last month after a group of parents complained. Under the 1993 pilot program, the teaching day was extended five minutes and teachers saved enough for an hour of professional development every other Friday. Parents said that students were left without supervision during that time.

Army Sgt. 1st Class Victor Shanks said the hero's welcome he received when he returned from the Persian Gulf a month ago was nothing compared to the one he got Thursday at John Wayne Airport. After all, when he arrived at Ft. Stewart, Ga., last month, he was just a face in the crowd. But Thursday, he was a one-man parade, greeted by the 31 members of the "Victor H. Shanks Fan Club" and a media mob.

The City Council has made it a violation to park in front of Villa Park Elementary School during certain school hours. Beginning Feb. 25, parking will be prohibited from 7 to 9 a.m. and from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. The City Council last week unanimously extended the no-parking hours on the streets that border the school so children arriving and leaving school will be more easily visible to drivers, officials said.

More than 1,500 students at Cerro Villa Middle School got the message that "drug use is life abuse" on Wednesday--in living red letters 60 feet tall. With their bodies, the youngsters from Cerro Villa and adjacent Serrano Elementary School spelled "DRUG FREE WAY TO BE" on the Cerro Villa football field. A sheriff's deputy photographed the scene from a helicopter several hundred feet above.
