    1. That was discussed in a story in October of 2016. As new schools were built, the population around each school was considered, and some schools were combined.

      “William Allen White and Parker elementary schools will be combined and students will attend elementary school in the building currently occupied by West Middle School, he said. The building will be renovated for an elementary school.”
