Closing Time For South Carvolth Environmental Elementary

A sad day for students and families of South Carvolth Elementary School as the School Trustees voted Tuesday to close South Carvolth Environmental Elementary as reported by the Langley Times. The Times Editor says “It was not a decision that pleased parents and students at the school — but it was the right decision.” He further goes on to say “it was all but inevitable” in his editorial.
While LFP expected that the Trustees would close the school we do not agree with this decision. When a significant portion of any community gets together and makes such a tremendous effort for a cause that this community has made our elected politicians should try at minimum to provide a stay of execution to see if it can be salvaged. We disagree with the Times Editorial.
