Hi Ginny,

Keep Westbench Elementary Open!

As you may know, a group of West Bench residents has created a group to advocate to keep West Bench Elementary School open.  They have a Facebook page here.

Also, there is a public meeting on December 1st at 7 PM.

My original posting on this topic can be found here.

Update 03 Dec 2015:

A good turnout at the meeting.

 

 

West Bench Elementary closure potential

I attended (most of) the School District 67 meeting last night on school closures.  The student enrollment projections for West Bench Elementary (click image on the left for a larger version) paint a very pessimistic picture.
