Vote yes in April 2 referendum

March 29, 2014

Hooray to Mr. Irise, whose letter was in Friday's Gazette, for being so objective!  Along with children being taught in modulars, there are other overcrowding issues at our elementary schools.  Lunches start being served in the late morning and continue through early afternoon in order to accommodate everyone. The cafeterias are packed throughout the lunch times.  In some schools the cafeteria doubles as an auditorium, so any time a stage with audience space is needed, that activity must be squeezed into the small windows of time when the cafeteria isn't being used for dining. The gym is often used for special events, requiring the physical education teacher to hope for good weather so that classes can be held outdoors.  Voting yes for the referendum April 2 would help alleviate some of these issues.
