IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO SAVE EAST FLORA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. LET'S STAND FIRM FOR OUR CHILDREN. EFE IS ON ACADEMIC WATCH - WE ARE NOT FAILING, AND EFE IS NOT THE ONLY SCHOOL IN MADISION COUNTY ON ACADEMIC WATCH. THEY CAN EASILY TRANSPORT THOSE STUDENT TO EFE. WE CAN SOLVE THE ENROLLMENT ISSUE. ALL THE STUDENTS THAT ARE IN THE EFE SCHOOL DISTRICT SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO ATTEND EFE. THAT WOULD INCREASE THE ENROLLMENT TREMENDOUSLY. THEN WE WOULD NEED A NEW SCHOOL - WE HAVE THE LAND. LET'S STAND FIRM TO BRING THE SPORTS AND EVERYTHING BACK TO FLORA. LET'S NOT GIVE UP. CONTACT YOUR RESOURCES AND GET BUSY.
