Several days before Thanksgiving, some parents said they contacted their School Committee members, but because they were not getting a response, they went to Fountain, their city councilor.
“They said they weren’t getting any response from School Committee members and so they reached out to councilors,” Fountain said of his constituents. “I said I would inquire, but we don’t have any jurisdiction in school matters.”
Several high school students reported safety concerns to administrators this year during their walk from the high school to Tenney Grammar School, where Rangerland was moved this year because of the high school renovation project. High school students will finish their preschool lab work at Timony Grammar School, while the preschoolers were reassigned to their neighborhood grammar schools.
Kannan did not respond to several interview requests. E-mails sent to School Committee members Kumm, Grondine, Chaisson and Fawcett asking the purpose of the Nov. 21 meeting did not receive a response.
