Perhaps the MP School district should occupy the Willow Oaks campus.

Menlo Park City School District should buy or rent the Willow Oaks campus, as a hedge against increased enrollment in the future. They could even consider building a new school there to replace the newly built Upper Laurel school and renting out the existing school. The new site would be closer to the Lower Laurel school, essentially a straight shot down Coleman Ave. Would avoid winding through the Willows neighborhood to get to Upper Laurel.
