School Board Finally Talks
The letter, sent to Emeryville residents last month and signed by some 70 people, challenges the School Board to not close Anna Yates Elementary School and to inform the citizenry as to the Board's intention as to the fate of the (elementary school) and the Ralph Hawley Middle School site. The letter also seeks to force the Board to tell the people how they intend to maintain an operating budget for the Center of Community Life.

The Board is intent on closing the elementary school on 41st Street and pushing the children onto the San Pablo Avenue campus at the Center of Community Life to be shared with the high school students. Despite years of citizen inquiry, the Board has not revealed what they intend on doing with the two soon to be "surplus" properties. Some residents have expressed alarm that the School District plans on selling the properties off to private developers as the Tattler reported last week.
The Emery Theater is on the High School campus behind the parking lot on San Pablo Avenue near 53rd Street. Walk through the parking lot and go to the left through the gate.
