NBC4: 'Battle is brewing over future of Seven Locks'

A "battle is brewing over the future of Seven Locks Elementary School in Montgomery County," NBC4-TV of Washington, D.C. reports.

School officials have attempted to wage a propaganda campaign of sorts, in the words of NBC4, "by holding informational meetings, trying to drum up parental support."

But parents and neighbors aren't buying it. They pledge a big fight over the future of the school, with nobody voicing support for the county's stealth plan to shutter and demolish the school, and build high-density housing on the ten-acre site.

Neighbor and parent Jay Weinstein speaks for almost everybody involved with the school, telling NBC4 that "We will fight it every step of the way."
