Parents Express Concern As Several Schools May Close

Concerns tonight from parents with kids in Rowan-Salisbury schools over a proposal to close six elementary campuses.

Parents voiced those concerns at a rally tonight at the Rowan County Fair Grounds.

The closures were suggested by an consulting firm hired by the district.

“Say we go moving them from Morgan to Rockwell, we’re talking about kids on the bus for 2 hours and 15 minutes each way.”

The parents plan to voice their concerns to the school board monday night.
