Longwood Elementary closes

Posted:

Longwood Elementary School is now closed. Wednesday was the last day of school. It's being closed due to school budget cuts.

"I'm sad because I don't want the school to close and all my teachers teach here," said 9 year old Carley Melton.

She'll have to start the fifth grade elsewhere. Her mom is just as devastated.

"I attended Longwood Elementary School as a child and I use to walk to school" said Kim Melton.

The Longwood City Commission wants to work with the school district on a joint use agreement to use the campus as a place to hold senior activities or other community activities.

Meanwhile, a group of parents are on a mission to start up a charter school in place of Longwood Elementary. We'll keep you posted on that process.
