LITTLETON — After mulling a concept to move the fifth and sixth grades at Lakeway Elementary School into the Littleton High School building, the school board on Monday voted against it.The vote comes after concerns expressed by some parents at a public forum in May about putting younger students, especially those in the fifth grade, in a building with older students, after further study regarding space and cost, and after a recent recommendation by the Lakeway School Building Committee. It also comes at a time when officials at Littleton School District SAU 84 have been looking at options for LES, which is housed in a 70-year building on Union Street that has dozens of code and life-safety deficiencies. Options include renovating the existing building or building a new school on another property in town.
