Banner against proposal
Coren Ellis lives on Stillwater Drive and decided to put this sign on her back deck to send a message to her neighbor, Elementary Education Director Robert Bushell, about her feelings on the recommendation to re-purpose Warwick Vets High School as a junior high. “It really was a message to him,” said Ellis, whose daughter is a sophomore at Vets. Ellis is also drafting a letter to the School Committee urging them to vote against the recommendation. “I think it lacks substance, is short-sighted and vague,” said Ellis, adding that the plan does not appropriately cite the impact on students, the access they will have to items such as libraries and science labs or what the School Department plans to do with the money they save.
