      Dear Wayland Voter,

      The School Committee will hold a public forum from 7 to 9 p.m.
      on Monday Jan. 28 on a proposal to reconfigure the elementary
      schools. This move would save an estimated $400,000 to
      lessen an anticipated $2.6 million Wayland budget shortfall.

      The forum will be held in the large hearing room at the Town
      Building.

      After studying ways to save money, the School Committee voted
      on Jan. 15 that if reconfiguration becomes necessary Loker
      School would house kindergarten classes. Happy Hollow and
      Claypit Hill would continue to serve grades 1-5. But the
      committee agreed to solicit more public comment before
      proceeding.

      The Committee plans to vote after the forum on whether to
      move forward on the "2-1/2 school" model for the fall of 2008.
