Elementary School in South Salem to close

The Lewisboro Elementary School in South Salem will close at the end of the school year.

In a 5 to 2 vote last night, the Katonah-Lewisboro Board of Education made the decision.

Many parents spoke out against the plan, raising concerns about bigger class sizes and the overall negative impact on the community.

School officials say the decision was based on a study that showed declining enrollment and increasing costs.
