Nevermore Elementary School is a school located in Chicago, School District 299.


The Chicago Ghostbusters were hired to speak before a classroom of children at Nevermore at 2 pm. The students seemed to expect the original Ghostbusters from New York. Ron Alexander took control and berated the students for taking up their time. Once a Chomp Bar was offered, Ron shifted the speech to a question and answer session. One student, named Nigel, asked if the Bogeyman was real or not. After everyone laughed at Nigel, Ron informed them the Bogeyman was indeed real. The room fell silent. Ron continued and told a story about a Bogeyman but Jason concluded they were full of shit. Ron responding by throwing chairs and the Ghostbusters were escorted out of the school.
