On May 23rd the AUSD Board will vote on whether or not to close Lum. Before that vote, the district decided to survey our Lum community to find out where families would like their children to go IF the Board votes to close Lum. The purpose of the survey, that was sent out to all Lum families, is to give parents a voice in the relocation plan, IF one is necessary.
It is especially IMPORTANT THAT FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN GOING INTO 4TH AND 5TH GRADE NEXT YEAR FILL OUT THE SURVEY.
In the event of Lum closure, we have the option of setting up a new 4th and 5th grade program in the Wood Annex (the space that was used by ACLC until a few years ago). This would be separate from the middle school, with a separate lunch and bell schedule, and would let the 4th and 5th graders stay together, with fewer transitions, former Principal Cammie Harris, and the continued option to walk to school. Once the 4th and 5th graders graduate, (in 2 years) Wood would return to a middle school 6-8 again.
Please vote for this option if it appeals to you.
If you do not vote for it, it’s very likely that the WOOD OPTION WILL NOT HAPPEN.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
DISTRICT NEEDS RESPONSES BY 5/19.
