Re "District notifies parents 11 schools may close" (Our Region, Jan. 17): Is closing 11 elementary schools going to make that much of a difference for the fiscal health of the district?
I may not have attended any of the schools that are listed to be shut down, but I did go to a Sacramento City Unified elementary school. Closing down the schools will not only affect the community and teachers, but mainly the children. Teachers will have to work at different schools, but the children lose their friendships, have to relocate to another school, and try to adapt to a new environment/community.
So keep in mind when these schools have to be shut down, that the children and communities will be greatly affected.
