Vote ‘No’, on the sole reason the bond is not what I and I hope others were expecting (a bond for a new high school, and a high school alone).

Letter: School’s out

Posted

To the editor:

Well, if we all pay attention to the lesson plan (the proposed bond issue), I guess we will acquire a lot more than we originally planned for.
Act now, and if you do, we will throw in thousands more to fix up schools. What a deal.

Let’s not forget that any school, structurally belongs to the Town in which it is located in, and is not the property of the Bristol-Warren Regional School District. Also, to be noted, I believe the Oliver School was sold. What happened to that money? Or did it pay off a second mortgage?

Then, with these changes, the plan is to take Guiteras out of the loop, and place 5th graders with the middle school. What a plan. I hope the majority of the parents are aware of this, considering the overall conduct and behavior of the middle school, in the past.

Don’t get me wrong, we need a new high school, but why all this excess package?

Vote ‘No’, on the sole reason the bond is not what I and I hope others were expecting (a bond for a new high school, and a high school alone).
