Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:

I am Ty Santabarbara.  I go to Altamont Elementary School. I believe that we should not shout down any schools like Altamont Elementary, because it will be a longer bus ride to get to a different school and that will waste gas and money.

To the Editor:

Hi, I am Katrina Rucinski. I am a student from Altamont. I think Altamont is one of the best schools in the in the world.

To the Editor:

How about exploring, in a very tentative way, consolidation of services for the state, county, town, and even school districts by having the state and county highway departments contracting to the town to have the highway mowing done by the town?

In 1976, the Guilderland School Board of Education considered the possibility of closing the Altamont Elementary School due to declining enrollment and to avoid an increase in the school tax rate.

To the Editor:

Altamont has been my home for the past 30 years, and is now the place I plan on raising my son. Superintendent Marie Wiles recently felt it necessary to use her “power” to hire a generously paid consultant to make suggestions to address the fiscal concerns in the Guilderland School District.
