I would like to thank all the members of the community who deliver The Lantern. Neither rain, snow, nor darkness keeps you from your job. Thank you to:
Grace Westreich (delivers two routes!)
Mary Ann Gallagher
Sharon & Richard Puckett
Leon & Kathleen Rubis
We do have some routes open. It is good exercise, and I try to get the copies to you in good weather. If you want to help, please call!
Again, thank you, volunteers!

New Elementary School
[via Dunn Loring Improvement Association]
The old elementary school building at the corner of Gallows and Idylwood Roads, which has been used as a school administrative center for several years, is going to be replaced with a new school.
The plan is to tear down the current building and replace it with a 900 student elementary school. The new building will be built on the existing soccer field (currently used by Vienna Youth Soccer). The proposed new school will be three stories with two new school play fields located where the old building is now. The new Kiss & Ride entrance will be located on Idylwood, directly across from Greenbrier Way, and the bus entrance will be 50 feet further west (towards Cedar Lane). Parking spaces will be reduced from existing 200 to 121 spaces.
Clearly this will mean redistricting, which will be addressed when construction begins.
Be a Good Neighbor
When the weather is windy, please ensure that your trash and recycling are secure. It’s never fun to clean up someone else’s loose cardboard or yard waste from one’s own yard. Thanks!
