Weymouth Develops Plan To Keep Nash Primary School Open

WEYMOUTH (CBS) – The Nash Primary School in Weymouth will remain open as the district works to close a $2.2 million budget gap. Last week, the town announced it was considering shutting the school down.

On Monday, Superintendent Jennifer Curtis-Whipple said the option was taken off the table after talking with parents and residents and examining the budget shortfall.

“We are pleased to announce that the district has developed a new proposal that will allow the school stay open,” Curtis-Whipple said. “However, parents and residents should know that this new proposal will affect every school and department in the district and the impacts will be felt district-wide.”

The full details of the proposal will be outlined at Tuesday night’s Town Council meeting.

The K-4 school has more than 150 students and 50 staff members.
