Jeff Syracuse Metro Council District 15
Donelson School News - August 2017
A few parents at Pennington Elementary reached out to me about a meeting that was being held at the school to discuss the issues surrounding the construction project. I didn’t know about the meeting until that day so I wasn’t able to attend. Our School Board Member, Anna Shepherd, did attend and learned the meeting was informative. As I understand, the project is slated to be completed by mid-2018. It’s not ideal and I believe the contractor will find it difficult to be involved with future MNPS projects after this. I’m sorry to hear about these delays and challenges but it sounds like the staff and administration are doing a good job managing it the best they can and any immediate safety issues have been properly addressed. Don’t hesitate to contact me with any additional concerns.
Welcome back to all students and best of luck in this new school year!
