ST. LOUIS COUNTY(KSDK) – Friday marks the last day at Bel Nor Elementary, which is closing as part of the Normandy School District's effort to cut costs.

Students are moving to nearby community schools that are as close as possible, Superintendent Ty McNichols told NewsChannel 5 in October.

The Normandy School District is also laying off 100 employees – including about 70 teachers, and plans to withhold checks for payment related to the school transfer situation.
