Petition Closed

Lower Salford Elementary school is located in the heart of the Souderton Area school district and has just celebrated it's 100th anniversary a few short weeks ago. LS, referred to as "Kidsville", is a school whose hallmarks are community, expression, responsibility and choice. The Lower Salford Elementary school is under review and may potentially be closed at the end of the 2012-2013 school year due to the unprecedented budget cuts the district is facing. The result of this potential closing will impact many of the other schools and students in the district as the task of redistricting will be eminent.

Lower Salford isn't just any elementary school, it is a 100 year old landmark in the center of this community. There is a true sense of pride in all that this school has evolved into over the past century.  We, the undersigned, ask that the potential of closing and re-districting Lower Salford Elementary not be considered an option as the district board takes on the task of continued budget cuts. We ask that the district respect and understand the negative effects this kind of change would bring to our community and carefully weigh those with the very short term monetary savings that might be recognized.

With respect for the task you have in front of you, we urge that the closing of this beloved school not be considered.
