White River student urges public support for coming school bond | Letter

I am a senior at White River High School and have lived in this community my whole life; although I attended Carbonado School K-8th grade.

I am a senior at White River High School and have lived in this community my whole life; although I attended Carbonado School K-8th grade, I have beenpositively affected by attending White River High School. This school district has rich history in our area, and approving this bond would keep our buildingand students in top shape.

Improvements to Glacier Middle School, Elk Ridge Elementary, Wilkeson Elementary, Mountain Meadows Elementary, Foothills Elementary and the high schoolwill ensure the best opportunity for learning in our growing community.

I have younger siblings that will attend White River High and it is important to me that they have the absolute best opportunity to learn here. For example,this bond is planning to eliminate all the portables at Glacier and Wilkeson and bring the classrooms into one common area. Achieving this undertaking willkeep our kids safer; it would assist the responding police and fire departments in their safety tactics; whether it be for evacuations, lockdowns, or fire alarmprocedures. Passing this bond would solidify the safest and best learning environment for our community’s future kids. So be sure to vote “YES” on February9 on the White River School District Bond.
