Polish School Might Lease Space at Vacant Central School

Lemont-Bromberek District 113A board members are willing to explore John Paul II Polish Language School leasing classrooms in Central School.

The pitter-patter of little feet might soon echo through the halls of Central School once again. 

District 113A is considering an agreement with the John Paul II Polish Language School—which would allow the school to use some of the classrooms closed since 2011. The classrooms would be in use Friday afternoons, through Saturday mornings.

Board member Patrick Kerrigan brought the idea before the board Jan. 22, noting that currently the school would like to consolidate from its current, two rental spaces at Ss. Cyril and Methodius, and a facility in Romeoville.

Interim Superintendent Pam Hollich said the administration would begin looking into formalizing an agreement and setting in place requirements regarding use and maintenance. 

"The more clear it is upfront, the more successful the relationship is likely to be," Hollich said. 

Board President Cindy Kelly said she'd like to explore the idea. 

"I was just excited to hear we'd be able to use the building," Kelly said.

too bad we couldn't somehow use a room or two for a place for our teenagers to go. obviously with adult supervision. It would keep them off the streets and possibly away from drugs & alcohol. I would offer to volunteer to oversee the program. And maybe the kids could give back to the community such as hosting coat drives, shoe drives, feed the homeless at a shelter. Some families can't afford to pay for park diet activities or school sports, due to finances or what not. Then these kids have too much 'idle' time. Just a thought since the building is vacant. At least it would be put to good use.
