Umatac stakeholders refuse to prep for school

Guam - Umatac stakeholders aren't giving up on the hope that elected leaders will pass a bill to keep F.Q. Sanchez Elementary School open for the coming school year. Until a decision is made, the residents don't want to buy school supplies or uniforms.  During a meeting last night, parents were informed that they would need to choose whether to send their children to the Marcial Sablan or Merizo Elementary Schools. 

Parent Mary Sanchez says because most parents have to head north to get to work, Agat is more appealing - but they made it clear they don't intend to make a decision yet.  If Bill 257 fails, the residents want ownership of the school facility.  If the measure passes, they want the school equipment returned to the campus.
