THE FERNBANK PROTOTYPE: A regrettable loss of trees and green space
As the DeKalb County School System has advanced its prototype for the new Fernbank School, parents and neighbors have grown increasingly concerned about the plan’s awkward fit with the site and the loss of trees and green space that will ensue.
We have published below a letter from DHCA president Justin A. Critz to the DCSS Superintendent, Michael Thurmond. Please take a moment to read it.
The DHCA also urges you to attend two meetings at which the future of the Fernbank School will be addressed.
*SPLOST IV Meeting: Thursday, January 23, 6pm, Sam Moss Service Center, 1780 Montreal Road, Tucker.
*The Fernbank School Council and PTA Meeting: Postponed until further notice. Representatives of the DeKalb County School District will provide an update on the construction of the new Fernbank Elementary School. This will be an opportunity for the public to get information and provide feedback and comments. Childcare for school-aged children and pizza for the kids will be provided courtesy of Fernbank aftercare and the Fernbank Foundation.
Please also refer to earlier postings on our website, The Future of Fernbank School.
