I am a concerned citizen of Altoona and a grandparent of children at Wright Elementary School.
They have attended Wright Elementary for eight years between the different children. They love their school very much, as well as the other children do, I am sure.
They are heartbroken over this matter.
I also attended Wright Elementary, when it was located at 13th Street and 14th Avenue. It was a well-loved school then as it is now. My children also attended there for a short while.
I had hoped that the school could stay open for the teachers, parents and especially, the students.
