Letter: No democracy with schools
Dear Editor, I was informed that on the evening of March 10, the Hudson School Board voted quickly and unanimously to approve the recommendation to, once again, re-zone the elementary school boundaries. What is shocking about this is the fact that the members of the School Board...

School Board approves new River Crest boundary
The Hudson Board of Education made a decision at its Tuesday meeting about who will and who won't be going to River Crest Elementary next year. The boundary change states that the neighborhoods of Carriage Lane/W. Red Cedar Canyon/E. Red Cedar Canyon/Lighthouse will be reassigned...

Letter: Has thoughts on boundaries
Dear Editor, Here's the reality of the River Crest boundary line situation. Four subdivisions involved take up only 24 percent of the total student population at River Crest. Simple math will tell us that if we move most of those students out of River Crest and send them to Rock...

Letter: Where are priorities?
Dear Editor, I was sitting down with my spouse talking about this River Crest boundary line situation. We feel the need to state the obvious. And basically it is this, does anyone else think it is crazy that the superintendant is allowing those children attending school through open...

Letter: Don't need River Crest addition
Dear Editor, The time is now to stand up for what is right! At last week's School Board meeting, they reviewed options for eliminating overcrowding at River Crest Elementary. After listening to tearful pleas of 10 parents, the board is seriously considering adding on to River Crest...

Letter: Commends the board
Dear Editor, Thank you, Hudson School Board, for listening! You heard the parents' concerns loud and clear at the Feb. 10 board meeting, where you approved a motion to postpone a decision on the River Crest boundary area. After last Tuesday's meeting, I am confident that the administration...

Letter: Should have built it right
Dear Editor, I am writing this because I am a concerned mother of three. I have issues with the fact that this School Board wants to make these kids move again when a school has not even been open a year. Now I have an 8-year-old, 6-year-old and a 5-year-old that will start school...

Adjusting attendance boundaries - always difficult
Making changes in the attendance area of a school is unusually difficult. It is a decision that any school district Board of Education or administration would prefer to avoid. The reality for the Hudson School District is, that even in these challenging economic times, we've continued...

Letter: Has 'inside' information
Dear Editor, The nature of politics is such that the public is rarely able to formulate their opinion based on all of the facts. The case of the school boundary line issue is no exception. Unfortunately, misinformation exists in the Hudson schools, under the noses of the School...

Letter: Has ideas for boundary issue
Dear Editor, Two years ago a referendum passed by 129 votes to build a new elementary school to support the south side of Hudson. Five months after the school opened the School Board plans to change the boundary lines, dividing families and neighborhoods. After the referendum passed,...

Our View: Board should work with neighbors
The juggling of students between the new River Crest Elementary and Rock Elementary has upset a number of people and we hope the School Board can find an agreeable solution. School boundary debates often do not affect large numbers of people, but those who are impacted are usually...

Letter: Upset with school rule
Dear Editor My family shares in the concerns of many in Red Cedar Canyon as we try to assimilate the news that the school boundary lines are set to flip-flop for some of us. We have a second-grader attending River Crest this year and have several medical bills to show how traumatic...

Letter: Upset with school's plan
Dear Editor, It has come to our attention that the Hudson Board of Education is proposing a boundary adjustment between River Crest and E.P. Rock in order to relieve/manage River Crest enrollment growth. Our 8-year-old son is a second-grader at River Crest, and we have two younger...

Letter: School offers no 'choice'
Dear Editor, The Hudson School Board has given my family a "choice." We live in the Lighthouse division and our school boundary currently sends my eldest son to River Crest Elementary. With the proposed boundary change, our "choice" is to leave him in River Crest and my other kids...
