SCHOOLS: Schedule is now unworkable

| June 11, 2010 10:00 PM

Regarding the school board’s decision to start school Mondays at 10 a.m.: Are you kidding me?!?!        

What world do these folks live in? Monday is the beginning of the week!  Work, life, school, nothing, starts at 10 a.m. in my world, or the world for anyone I know!

I'm certainly encouraged that the school board has made available extra hours child monitoring, for a fee. So now, to add to inconvenience I'll be saddled with additional expense?

Further, does it make more sense to inconvenience everyone, rather than a few?  How many teachers are there, and how many kids? Is the tail wagging the dog? Budgets are budgets, but they aren't the only factor.

I say we all take our kids to school at 8:30, and let the school decide what to do with them. Try to charge me for letting my kid play at the school he has a right to attend! Let's see where that goes... I'm game.

We all need to let the five board members know they have not made a decision for the majority. Come on people!
