Community Meeting for Boundary Change
NTA’s effort to protect our school continues. Although NTA represented strongly at the first community meeting on June 6, there is a second meeting on Tuesday, June 20 at 5pm at which CPS will present a plan for NTA to become a high school. All families are urged to attend this meeting. The address for the meeting is South Loop Elementary School located at 1212 South Plymouth Court. Free childcare is available at NTA from 4:00-7:30pm. For families who need transportation, buses will be provided to take pick up families from NTA, take them to the meeting, and then back to NTA when the meeting ends. We hope to see you there.
