If you look at a map of Sligo’s zone (page 6), you see a small area that receives students from Highland ES, and which is surrounded by students who go to Newport Mills. It is bound by Dalewood Drive, Goodhill Road, Valleywood Drive, and Veirs Mill Road. It includes about 35 students per grade.
Highland’s PTA has presented to MCPS a request to move this population to Newport Mills, and the Board of Education has agreed to conduct an abbreviated boundary study to consider such a move, to take place as soon as next year.
A meeting will be held with BOE representatives on January 12, 7:00pm, at Sligo Middle School. please bring any questions or concerns you have.
