Letter to the Editor
Friday, Feb. 21, 2014, 8:57 p.m.
 

I'm writing to continue the effort to keep Laurel Point Elementary School open. There isn't sufficient space to list the reasons why this award-winning school needs to stay open.

The Kiski Area School Board needs to truly listen to the taxpayers, parents and students who attend. The people's vote has to count.

Nobody in the community wants the school to close, so why aren't we being heard? Petitions have been presented, letters and editorials written and meetings attended. Despite our efforts, we are not being heard.

A final decision has to be made in April. Will the school close or remain open? There is little time left, but there is still hope.

We need prayers and every person to join in the effort to keep our school open. The next Kiski School Board meeting is on March 12. Please rally your troops and come to the meeting.

In my last letter to the VND, I said, “We will keep trying until the doors and windows are boarded up.” I'm saying it again.

I also want to thank everyone at Laurel Point — the teachers, students and staff. You deserve to stay there and thrive.
