Doesn't the Almanac's "circulation area" cover all of Menlo Park, including Belle Haven? If so, then the area includes 5 elementary school districts, not 4 as the author stated. Where's Ravenswood?

Just Asking: The Ravenswood School District is covered by our sister paper, The Palo Alto Weekly.
The Almanac covers news and events in the Belle Haven neighborhood of Menlo Park, but not the school district, because it is primarily in East Palo Alto, a city covered by the Weekly, but not The Almanac.
Likewise, The Almanac covers the town of Atherton, but not the Redwood City School District, even though it includes a large portion of Atherton within its boundaries.
The reason is the same: most of the district is in Redwood City, which is outside of the Almanac's circulation area.
