On Tuesday July 29 there will be a public hearing at the Petrides School about targeted money which can go to reduce class size, provide special ed services, etc. Please go and let your voices be heard.

For details, please see the post below under “Lavelle School”. I am still figuring out how to move these items around. Thanks for your patience! and thank you Andrea for keeping us informed.
