Letter: Article 8 will not close small schools
To the editor:
I am appalled by the signs in Francestown, Hancock and Bennington suggesting that a “No” vote on Article 8 would close the smaller towns’ elementary schools. Article 8 proposes to change language to mandate that the ConVal District have only one middle school, in Peterborough, in itself a short-sighted action which has not been thoroughly researched and is not recommended by the School Board.
It has nothing to do with closing elementary schools. I urge you to follow your ConVal School Board’s recommendation and vote ‘No’ on Article 8.
