Hartford School District has Lincoln, Rossman as elementary schools and Central is their middle school. They too have their own colors and mascots. Let's ponder possible names for the potential new district in Richfield as well as individual schools as a way to keep unity for all students, families and school staff.
The district might be called Richfield Unified School District. That is one way to identify all students as living in the Village of Richfield. The individual schools might be called Friess Lake Elementary and Richfield Middle School.
By using those names each school can keep their school colors and mascot. No major interruption for anyone.
What do you think the members of the two school board should consider if the merger occurs? Let's give them some ideas.
