Rallies held against possible Bennetts Valley Elementary School shutdown

St. Marys – Bennetts Valley Elementary School is facing a possible shutdown in the future and many community members are trying to stop it.

On Friday, August 5th community members gathered outside the school to rally against the shutdown.

Community members spoke out about the situation and the need for the community to come together before a decision is made.

It’s so important for us all to come together and stand up now because a decision hasn’t been made. We want the school board members to understand where we’re coming from and our thoughts, feelings, and concerns to hopefully make them understand and vote no on that day,” President of the SOS Committee Danielle Assalone said.

Another rally will be held on Monday, August 8th at 6 p.m. in the parking lot before the next scheduled board meeting at the St. Mary’s High School Library.
