FISHER SCHOOL IN TOWN OF FOX LAKE CLOSED

JULY 27, 1950

 

The Fisher School at the intersection of County Trunk A and Hwy. 33 in the Town of Fox Lake will be closed this year.

 

The decision to close the school is the result of a special school meeting held Thursday, July 20, at which time the votes of the district cast 47 ballots in favor of closing the school to 44 against it.

 

Preceding the election vigorous campaigns were conducted by both sides, with those in favor of closing using figures showing a tax savings to be obtained by closing the schools, while their opponents claimed that it was the first step toward entering a city school district. The latter contention was denied by Armund Frietag, a member of the County School Committee, and Ira Cravillion, county supt. of schools, both of whom attended the meeting.

 

Students of the district will now attend schools of other districts, and District No. 5 will pay the tuition for all and the transportation of those living more than 2 miles from the school they will attend.

 

Several of these students have been attending school in Fox Lake with their parents paying the tuition, or in cases where they lived farther than 2 miles from the Fisher School, District No. 5 paid the tuition.

 

District No. 5 is among the top in the county in assessed valuation and has attracted attention before because of the schools low pupil-teacher ratio.
