Beware of Falling Bricks at Flat Land High School

Flat Land High School, Sweet Swine County’s only high school, is making plans to shore up its brick walls with more cement and concrete. The high school's former student and County Safety Engineer, Elmer Plow, told Sweet Swine Scoop, "The building is historic and bears some fixing up. Bricks have been falling out primarily because when the the school was built, there was a shortage of masons and cement, so local farmers just stacked the bricks on top each other like Lego blocks. We're paying the price for that now, unfortunately."

“Flat Land High” is home to the sometimes-winning horseshoe team, “Flat Land Prairie Dogs.” Located one mile outside the town of Corn Row, it was built in 1907 when citizens from all over the county donated bricks from their abandoned well houses. The school holds classes every Tuesday and Thursday to prepare students to meet the challenges of life in Sweet Swine County. Many graduates go on to college at Purrdoo University, Sweet Swine County's Institute For Hire Learnin'.
