The Mammoth-San Manuel Unified School District is considering closing two elementary schools.

The district sent a letter to parents on February 1 explaining why they want to consolidate. 

The district currently uses three buildings to house only 710 students. Officials say going to a Preschool through 12th would help the district better use their resources.

The district is discussing the school closures during their board meeting this evening and will vote to hold a public hearing on March 3 in the District Auditorium located at 711 McNab Parkway.

Input can also be submitted to the Governing Board through their website, www.msmusd.org . The survey will close on March 7.

The district is attributing a drop in enrollment to the mine closure in 1999.
