Update Pleasegreenspun.com : LUSENET : Ottawa School Closures : One Thread
Hi, my name is Roy Salame. I am a former student of Alta Vista Elementary Public School (1986-1990)Grades 2 through 5. I am writing to ask what is the latest news on the closing of the public schools in Ottawa. The last postings are from 1998. I didn't hear about it until today, Friday, May 25, 2000, when I was feeling nostalgic and decided to go on-line and see if Alta Vista had a web site. I am 22 years old and I am currently living in Florida. My parents took me out of Alta Vista where I had spent the best years of my life and moved to Florida in 1990 because they hated the cold weather and the economy. I think Alta Vista is the best public elementary schools in Ottawa and it is one of the biggest in size. Back in my day the student population was 800.
