The 140-year-old Oldfields School could be forced to close in less than two years if officials are unable to raise at least an additional $1 million annually, according to a recent letter seeking financial support from graduates and families. "We have come to a crossroad in Oldfields' history," Dede Alexandre LeComte, head of the school's trustee board and a 1972 graduate, wrote in the letter. "If our financial condition remains unaltered, the future of the school after June 2009 is in serious question."
