    May as well be in the loop about the upcoming reviews if your kids or neighbours' kids are going to be impacted.

    Read that Ancaster schools will have a year's reprieve for accommodation review as the board is waiting on a new school to be open next year. http://www.hamiltonnews.com/news-sto...study-on-hold/

    If Ancaster Senior were to close, the grades 7-8 would be expected to bus to Dalewood in Ainslie Wood (closest one I can think of)? Not sure which other schools have 7-8 in their grade lineup.

    Looks like the Ancaster elementary schools are going to be reviewed:
    http://www.hamiltonnews.com/news-sto...closure-study/

    The board has Tiffany Hills school site underway (see those dirt piles across the road from the Hamilton District Christian High School?) so will it be open BEFORE any elementary schools get closed. Fessenden & Ancaster Senior are neighbours to St. Joachim school. Ancaster Meadows is crowded so expect some of their pupils to get a chance to move to Tiffany Hills.

    The new Tiffany Hills elementary school in Ancaster will open next week:

    I remember the naming contest held about a year ago for the school. Had hoped for an inspired name, not the most obvious one related to the survey and known land history.
