Emotions ran high as parents of students from Polk Elementary spoke to the school board Monday evening in Cedar Rapids.
As part of a plan to consolidate the Cedar Rapids school district, the closing of Polk is one option the district is considering.
"I just really pray that it doesn't get closed, that Polk can stay open and continue to touch the lives of children and their families in a positive way," Parent Susan Osterkamp said.
This sentiment was echoed by many parents who voiced their concerns at this meeting. Some parents have started a petition in an attempt to save the school.
The school board's final decision will be made March 12.
