 Aviation Academy parents and students are upset that Newport News Public Schools may move the magnet program from its Airport location to the Denbigh Professional Park. The School Board first heard the proposal at its business meeting Dec. 18. Students were notified earlier that afternoon at an assembly, and letters were mailed to parents that week.
