Parents and community members in the West York district interested in learning more about the elementary school reconfiguration can attend a public meeting Wednesday to learn more about the logistics of the changes set for next year.
Currently, the district has four elementary schools for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. With the change, all second- and third-grade students will attend Lincolnway Elementary School, and fourth- and fifth-grade students will attend Trimmer Elementary.
Students in kindergarten and first grade will attend the Loucks and Wallace elementary schools. Loucks will close after renovations to Wallace are completed.
The school board voted to reconfigure the schools in December, saying the move would save money and balance the district population in elementary schools.
A previous meeting about the change was held in October, when parents raised concerns about longer bus rides and other logistics. Since then, the district has included a "frequently asked questions" page on its website about the switch.
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in the Middle School Auditorium, 1700 Bannister St. in York.
