Enlarge E. Rivers & Keep Us Together – The LSC and PTA will reiterate to APS and the demographers that we support our original message: Enlarge E. Rivers and keep the community together. For detail, see the letter from PTA and LSC leadership (posted on our neighborhood website).
Importance of Feedback to Demographers/APS – In this ongoing process it will be crucial for E. Rivers families to provide feedback to the demographers and APS. We can do so in three key ways:
