The Vinegar Hill Association in Springfield is organizing a drive to rebuild/expand SHS at its present site, the corner of Lewis and Adams streets.
The Association has a website where residents of District 186 may download a form, fill it in, and send it to members of the School Board. (Too bad school alumni can't respond!)
The Board is considering a proposal to relocate SHS west to Koke Mill Road. The old building would become a fine arts or technical academy and also administrative headquarters.
Vinegar Hill is the area directly west of downtown. The VHA is devoted to preserving and protecting its historic character. If you grew up in that area, you might like to join the Association for a mere $10 in dues.
