Parents invited to Murfee/Haynes meeting

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - We have a follow up to a story KCBD NewsChannel 11 broke last week in an email news alert. An invitation from LISD officials has gone out to parents of Murfee and Haynes Elementary students after word that the two schools might be merged.  The idea would be part of a $220 Million bond issue in November that could include improvements to every school in the Lubbock ISD. 

Starting Friday, parents of children at Murfee Elementary and Haynes Elementary began receiving automated calls with a recorded message.  Murfee Principal Cynthia Andrews says in the recording that Superintendent Dr. Karen Garza met with small focus groups including parents of children from both schools. 

Andrews says the idea was to see if merging the schools would be met favorably and then expand the discussion to include more parents. "Unfortunately before the focus groups were concluded, the media became aware of the proposal, and it made it to the news before we could visit with you.  Dr. Garza and I did not intend for you to hear about this plan through the media," Andrews said.

The recording invites Murfee parents to attend a meeting on Tuesday July 13th at 6 p.m. in the Murfee cafeteria. Haynes parents are invited to attend a meeting on Wednesday, July 14th.
