Tomorrow, April 13, our school district will be closed.
We realize that when school is closed it can cause disruption in daily schedules and hardships for everyone. We not only hope to have your understanding in why we have closed, but we also need you to help advocate for your child. WE NEED YOU to join with us in a fight for public education!
What is at stake is a complex issue. It would be impossible to condense it all to one short, concise page. Therefore, I want to make a few points and clarify some misconceptions as to why we are canceling school tomorrow.
- Teachers ARE NOT asking for a raise.
- Teachers ARE NOT fighting for a pension; (that bill has already passed).
- We need for the Senate and House to OVERRIDE the Governor’s veto of HB200 (budget/school funding), HB 366 (revenue/tax reform) and SB362 (CERS contribution phase in).
- We need EVERYONE to contact legislators.
