Schools in Lodi almost closed down in 1922. The school year began typically enough on Sept. 11 of that year. With the grape harvest in full swing and with police fully occupied catching bootleggers with illegal jackass brandy stills, Lodi's schoolchildren lined up for the opening bell that day.

There were 1,225 children enrolled in Lodi grammar schools, a gain of seven over the previous year. Lodi had four elementary schools — Salem, Emerson, Lincoln and Needham. A fifth school, Garfield, was near completion. Lodi Union High School opened with 475 students, 73 more than the previous year.
