School board presented a concept that entails moving fifth and sixth grades at LES to the Littleton High School

As Littleton School District SAU 84 continues to look into options for the aging Lakeway Elementary School, the school board, during a special community input meeting in the Lakeway gym on Monday, presented a concept that entails moving fifth and sixth grades at LES to the Littleton High School. Citing underused space in the high school building that could accommodate 200 more students, the concept is one of several options that the New England School Development Council (NESDEC) recommended that the Littleton School Board explore. Some Lakeway parents, however, expressed concerns about younger students who are less socially and emotionally developed, particularly those in fifth grade, being in the same building as older students and being exposed to things they otherwise would not be exposed to at a young age.
