Astroworld victims memorial planned
Neuqua Valley High School plans to hold a memorial service for two of its graduates killed at the Astroworld Friday music festival in Houston. The two victims were Franco Patino, 21, and Jacob Jurinek, 20, two best friends who had gone to the festival to celebrate Jurinek’s upcoming 21.st birthday. The two were among eight killed in a crowd surge at the concert. The school is delaying setting a date for the memorial until funeral arrangements for the two have been made.
Frontier Forum D204
Large crowds marched to Neuqua Valley High School and gathered outside to protest one of the concepts being considered at the Indian Prairie School District 204 Boundary Community Forum last night. 41 people spoke during the public comments, representing communities across the district. They raised concerns about the lack of options beyond the current two concepts, disruption to students resulting from proposed school closures and community divisions, and road safety and travel issues associated with reallocations. proposed schools, among other issues. Prior to public comments, the community viewed concept maps and discussed them directly with members of the Boundary Committee. It was the second of three forums; the third will be at Metea Valley High School tonight. The committee will then implement the comments at a future meeting.
