Attention parents of 4th graders or younger, or anyone who supports the building of the Arrowcreek Middle School:
The meeting to solicit community opinion on the transfer of land from the USDA to the WCSD was held tonight. If you think this project is not being met with opposition, you are wrong. Many members of the surrounding neighborhood showed up to voice their opinions.
The USDA needs to hear support from parents. They have currently only heard from people who oppose the location of the school.
Please take time to write David Drake at firstname.lastname@example.org before 10/20/17 to share your support for the Middle school.
This approval keeps the timeline on track for a 2020 or 2021 opening for 6th, 7th and 8th grades.
Please overwhelm Mr. Drake with your email support!
See Arrowcreek Middle School Town Hall Meeting on Wed, Oct 11, 2017 for location map.

This affects kids at Hunsberger, Lenz, Huffaker, and possibly Pleasant Valley or Brown depending on how the district redraws the zoning lines. Here is a current map of the middle school districts… look how much area Pine and Depaoli cover compared to the others!
