If the school board is going to be expected to vote on a consolidation plan, I need to be fully informed about the current facilities and their use. One might expect everyone else to feel the same. To this end, I emailed a request to the school board chairman, Nancy Steenson, representative of the people of Danville.

In order to have an informed opinion about a facilities consolidation plan I require current knowledge of both school facilities, preferably before the next school board meeting on Dec. 18th and most certainly before the next budget committee meeting on Dec. 23.
I have confirmed with Jim Hughes that he is available to provide a tour of SN on the following dates:
Monday evening (day before budcom meeting) – December 22nd
Monday during the day (school vacation) – December 29th
Friday during the day (school vacation) – January 2nd
This would be a tour for you and any other Board or Budget committee members only. Tours for the public are every year in September. Please let me know which date works best for you, as Jim’s schedule fills up quickly. Once you decide on a date, I will extend an invitation to the rest of the School Board and Budget Committee.

I’m afraid none of these times are responsive to my request. I asked to see the facilities during the day before the evening of Dec. 23. If Mr. Hughes can’t arrange this, then I will ask the Sandown Board of Selectmen to see what they can arrange through Dr. Metzler.
