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: Boundary is concern
Dear Editor, We are the parents of three young children. Our oldest child is 6 years old and is currently attending Kindergarten at River Crest. We live in the Lighthouse neighborhood inside of the area that is impacted by the proposed school boundary change. Under the current recommendation...

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: Upset with board
Dear Editor, Just recently I received a mailing from the school district. This mailing, costing $5,000 and written by a former board member now costing us $80,000 a year, touted the fiscal conservatism of our district. If that's not enough to anger the average hardworking taxpayer,...

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: 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,...

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...
