"I just don't think that a lot of common sense has been used in any of this stuff is what it amounts to, and they're in such a big hurry on it."

ROSE CREEK, Minn. --
"I just hope that they reconsider on it and leave it here. If they don't, well, it's a mistake that I think they've made and we'll be the ones that will have to pay for it."

On Monday, the Southland School Board voted to close Southland Elementary School in Rose Creek.

Long-time Rose Creek resident Fred Ulven attended Southland Elementary School as a child, and so did his children and grandchildren. 
He thinks the decision to close the school is rushed.

"Time will tell. We'll see what happens," says Ulven.

The elementary school students are expected to move to the combined middle and high school building in Adams for the 2019-2020 school year.
