WATERTOWN, S.D.–The first of two scheduled community listening sessions in being held tonight on the topic of potentially closing one of Watertown’s five elementary schools.

It’s being held at 5:30 in the High School Commons Area and is open to the public.

Watertown’s elementary schools are being used at only two-thirds capacity, and that has district officials wondering if it might be wise to close one of them in the interest of efficiency.

But before any decisions are made, they want to hear from the public.

A second listening session will be held on February 8th.
