Have you heard the news that AISD is considering closing Zilker & Barton Hills? We are hoping to hear soon…and hoping that they keep these great schools open! You can check out our blog on this on our Team Ensor site.

Very disappointing considering how many kids go to each of these schools. Hopefully the city will figure out a way to keep them open.
