The school bell rang for one last time today at Bel-Nor Elementary School.
The Normandy School District is closing the school because they can no longer afford to keep the school open. The 300 students and dozens of teachers will be transferred to other schools in the district. The budget crunch happened when Normandy lost its accreditation and was forced to pay the tuition and transportation costs for the hundreds of students who transferred to other schools.
Educators do not support the decision to close the school mid-year. Administrators say closing the school was the only way to pay bills through the end of the year.
