      Flint to shut down both middle schools

      The plan means four more schools will close.

      In a somehwat surprising decision the Flint School Board has decided to close McKinley and Holmes Middle Schools, closing the doors on both existing middle schools in Flint.

      Students in grades 7-12 will attend the three existing high schools beginning next year.

      Less of a surprise, the district will close Summerfield and Bunche elementary schools.

      The plan will go before the board for final approval on May 16th.
