The group gathered at school board headquarters this afternoon to deliver a Mother's Day card to Barbara Byrd-Bennett.

The card included a list of how the closings will negatively affect their families and neighborhood.

Bennett released a statement saying in part, "The district is working to safely move children to higher performing schools to better fit their academic needs."
