It's one of seven elementary schools on the chopping block, but the only school in the Tulsa Public Schools district in the community of Turley. Parents fear without the school, their community will fall apart.
"This is not only a school it's a community building that we share and we all get together and have a good time," Dale Graham said. "You take our school, you take our town and we're not going to let that happen."
Parents say they plan to protest at the superintendent's office Monday morning at 7 a.m. Cherokee has a little more than 200 students and it's only expected to gain a handful of students over the next five years.
