Lansing, MI – Lansing, MI (WKAR) - The Lansing School District will hold an informational meeting for parents at Grand River Elementary School tonight.

The district is closing Grand River and another elementary, Moores Park, in June. It's part of a plan to address declining enrollment, budget problems and aging school buildings in the district.

Parents, teachers and administrators fought to save Moores Park Elementary...and so did its neighbors.

As WKAR's Gretchen Millich reports, the closure of Moores Park Elementary marks the end of an era of community connection to the school.
