On Monday night the South Montgomery School Board decided to close Waveland Elementary at the end of the current school year with a 5-2 vote.
Nearly 100 people were in attendance of the night's vote which was held in the Large Group Instruction room of the high school.
The board approved the outsourcing of custodial work on Monday night on a 7-0 vote which will allow money to be used from the Capital Projects Fund instead of all the expense coming from the General Fund.

Donations for Operation Toy Box are still under way.
Commander Rodney Strong of American Legion Post 72 presented a $500 check to Operation: Toy Box XX this year.
“We are always pleased to be able to support the children of our community, especially at this time of year”, Strong commented.
Gloria Long of the Delta Theta Tau Sorority accepted the check. The sorority co-sponsors the annual toy drive along with the local unit of the Indiana Army National Guard. Long said the money would be used to purchase toys for age groups that might need additional toys.
Operation Toy Box accepts new, unwrapped toys from newborn to age 15. Toys, which can be donated at over 20 local collection sites, will be distributed to families identified by the RAINdear program.
