Williams Elementary may shut down

An iconic elementary school nearly a century old could be seeing its final days.

With a low enrollment of only 58 students, Three Rivers School District is considering closing down the 93-year-old Williams Elementary School.

The district is setting up a feasibility committee to determine the school’s fate.

Concerns about bus route changes, funding and employment if the school closes started pouring in from parents, staff and students.

Christy Miller is a parent of a 2nd grader at the school who is passionate about keeping the school open.

“It’s a school that’s kind of part of Williams to me. I’ve lived here for most of my life and my husband has and we’ve grown up driving by this school and watching the school kind of change,” Miller said.

Miller thinks enrollment will go up as the population of Williams increases.

According to the district, students will be sent to Applegate School if Williams Elementary closes.

Woodland Charter would potentially take over the Williams Elementary School location.

The Three Rivers School Board will hold a public forum December 13th at Williams Elementary.
