Mills Town Council Disagrees with the Closing of Mountain View Elementary

Mills town officials said they are against closing the town's last remaining school last week.

Mills Council members approved a resolution, opposing the closure of Mountain View Elementary.

They came up with the resolution after getting emails and phone calls from angry residents.

Last week Natrona County School District officials announced their considerations for closing Mountain View Elementary.

University Park, Willard Elementary and Frontier Middle School are three other schools which could also close next year.

In an email from NCSD officials, they said Mountain View sits at less than half capacity.

The email also stated that the district has 970 empty elementary school seats.

The school district board will vote on closure recommendations at their October 23 meeting.
