I find it ironic that the tax bill arrives in November showing the increase in taxes from the November 2018 vote on the LPOSD levy and we only have our students in the classroom for 13 days in November and three of those days are on early release Wednesday. Ironically, that tax bill reflecting the levy Increase arrives days after the November 2019 vote on making that a permanent increase. I do not mind paying my fair share to educate the future of our great country, but why are the students and teachers only in the classroom together half of the year?
Since when do we close school for a full week over Thanksgiving?
Why do we close school for 2 full weeks over Christmas/New Year, back in my day we were off Christmas Eve and back Jan. 2.
What is a end-of-the-quarter day off that just happens to fall on a Friday every time for another three-day weekend?
I think it is very important to pay school teachers a good salary, but they are only in the classroom with students 173 days per year? How can we develope good work ethic with our future work force if we raise them with this weak of a schedule?
Hey school boards and administrators how about giving our children an education they deserve and that the taxpayers are paying for.
