The support of the community for re-opening a neighborhood school within the Whisman/Slater area was great at last week's meeting. But we still need to show the Board that there is a large contingency of people that are interested in this.
Please sign our petition at: Web Link to show your support for re-opening a school in our neighborhood.
Thank you!

The topic of reopening a Whisman area school will be on this week's Board Meeting agenda at the MVWSD Board Meeting on Thursday, May 1, 8:40pm (yes, we are the last item on the agenda)

The school board meeting last week to present our ideas on re-opening a neighborhood school in the Whisman/Slater area was a success and a start in the right direction. The next step in this process will take place this Thursday, May 1 when the School Board will hold a discussion during their regular board meeting on this topic. See the agenda link -- item on the last page: Web Link.

The discussion will take place at the District Board Room, 760-A San Pierre Way at 8:40pm.

If you are interested to hear what the school board has to say about our ideas and other ideas they have been thinking about, this would be a good meeting to attend. There will be time for community input as well, so we encourage anyone who wants their voice to be heard about the options for a local school to please come and give your input.


Don't miss out on the discussion!
