CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- The Chambersburg Area School Board voted unanimously Wednesday to close Coldbrook Elementary School, according to district spokeswoman Sylvia Rockwood.

For 2009-10, about 120 students in kindergarten through fifth grade attended the school. District officials previously said $1 million would be needed over the next two years to maintain the building itself.

Parent Cheryl Champion recently presented the board with a petition asking to keep the school open. The petition had several hundred signatures.
