"Down the lane on top the hill my school house waits for me.

Inside it's walls we work and learn to be all that we can be.

Learning to live together, making our lives more full,

I will never forget the things you taught us.

DEAR OLD DONEGAL SCHOOL."

Elementary Classroom

No one can do everything, but everyone can do something, and together we can save our school.

• Closure of Donegal Elementary will only worsen an already overcrowded situation in our other school buildings making it impossible to keep our children safe and distanced in the midst of a pandemic. NOW is the time to USE the EXTRA SPACE AT DONEGAL NOT CLOSE IT DOWN!!!

• Closure of Donegal Elementary will put our children as young as 5 years old on extended bus rides, up to an hour ride (one way), requiring unreasonable wake times as well as extended driving distances during harsh winter weather conditions. Mount Pleasant School District covers 106 square miles with greater than 50% (65 square miles) of it being within the Mountain Area – it's completely unreasonable to close yet another elementary building in a District which accounts for such a large geographical area.

• Closure of Donegal Elementary will continue to put extreme burdens on the families of this school district, which are already struggling as a result of the imposed K-3, 4-6 district reconfiguration from 2 years ago. Further worsened by the mental strain and difficult learning environments COVID 19 has brought!

• Closure of Donegal Elementary will have an impact on the local community. It will impact businesses, property values and the desire of families to stay a part of the MP School District and attract new families here.
