Consider Carbondale schools when going to polls

Dear Editor,My husband and I, along with our four children, are long-time residents of Carbondale and we would like to give you a few reasons why we support 3A and 3B (upcoming bond issue and mill levy).We have one child that started and completed his education in Carbondale, one child that finishes this year, and two children continuing. Throughout these years within the Carbondale school district, we have struggled with over-crowded classrooms and outdated auditoriums, science, and computer labs. Several modular trailers, most without restrooms, are being used as classrooms. One gym is not enough for the demand. Our middle school building has many uses at night, limiting the use by it’s students in the evening. Carbondale Elementary students are forced to use the high school auditorium for large activities. The list goes on.We feel the town would benefit in many ways by having new and up-to-date school buildings we all could be proud of. I understand our schools have some internal struggles as well, but the fact still remains that our buildings are old and we need more room for our continuing growth. Please vote yes on 3A and 3B, for our future.Sincerely,Brent and Roxanne LoughCarbondaleDespite the name, we take no positionDear Editor,It has been brought to the attention of the Defiance Thrift Store board of directors that a letter to the editor and subsequent article in the Post Independent implied that Defiance Thrift Store has taken a position opposing the school bond proposal. In fact, the board has taken no position on the issue and does not oppose or support the proposal. We regret any confusion that may have ensued.Sincerely,The Defiance Thrift Store Board of DirectorsGlenwood Springs
