Sup­port Fire­lands Schools is­sue

The Morning Journal (Lorain, OH) - - OPINION -

Fire­lands Schools has a bond is­sue on the bal­lot to build a new high school.

The pro­posal will pro­vide our com­mu­nity with a new high school and re­pur­pose the ex­ist­ing high school as the mid­dle school.

It will al­low our stu­dents, teach­ers, and staff the op­por­tu­nity to teach and learn in a 21st-cen­tury en­vi­ron­ment free of as­bestos, leak­ing roofs, cracked floors, poor air and wa­ter qual­ity, and con­tin­ual re­pairs that cost the com­mu­nity money.

South Amherst Mid­dle is no longer ad­e­quate or safe for our chil­dren or the adults that work there.

It is 108 years old and has sur­passed the typ­i­cal life-ex­pectancy for schools build­ings in Ohio.

Sup­port­ing the bond is­sue will pro­vide our stu­dents, teach­ers, and staff a safe and se­cure learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment, ADA com­pli­ance and up-to-date elec­tric to sup­port to­day’s tech­nol­ogy needs.

These op­por­tu­ni­ties will al­low our chil­dren to re­ceive a top-notch ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence to sup­port the grow­ing global needs they will face post high school.

Sup­port­ing the bond is­sue will pos­i­tively im­pact our com­mu­ni­ties and strengthen the lo­cal econ­omy.

As a com­mu­nity mem­ber, par­ent, and alumni of Fire­lands Schools, I sin­cerely ask for your sup­port of the Fire­lands Schools’ bond is­sue.

The Fire­lands com­mu­nity needs this now more than ever. Our chil­dren, teach­ers, and com­mu­nity de­serve bet­ter and to­gether we can make it pos­si­ble for them.

Now is the time to vote for Fire­lands Schools.
