Dear Longmeadow Community:
The School Committee met Monday, February, 9, 2015 to discuss the budget. LCTV was unable to record the public presentation, so we encourage you to review last week’s budget presentation as this video contains all of the important information. The link is on our website at:
School Committee was concerned that the weather impacted attendance at the meeting as no parents or community members attended. Unfortunately, while there was a snow date scheduled for evening, more snow is predicted and the Select Board is in need of our budget by . For this reason, the School Committee has approved the budget, as presented last Monday night, but is leaving the window open for feedback until . You may email the School Committee at email@example.com with your comments for our review.
Should there be issues to reconsider, then the School Committee will reconvene at a future date to discuss matters. If there should be no new public comment or information, then the proposed budget will be forwarded to the Town without further review.
We appreciate your support and involvement.
