Elementary school in Westerly to close

A Westerly elementary school will be closing for good at the end of the school year.

The Westerly Sun reported that the School Committee voted 4-3 Wednesday night to close Bradford Elementary School, one of four elementary schools in the town.

Most of the 77 students at Bradford -- which serves kindergarten through grade 4 -- will go to Dunn's Corners Elementary School in the fall.

It was not immediately clear what would happen to teachers and staff.

School officials said the move will save the district more than $650,000, the newspaper reported.
