One can’t place a numerical value on community
To the Editor:
I attended the meeting at Guilderland High School regarding the use of buildings in the district. I was troubled by a comment made by Mr. Seversky.
More than once, he mentioned that the middle-school building was our greatest asset. I strongly disagree with this.
Our greatest asset is our children, their families, our teachers, and our community.
If an act of nature destroyed Altamont Elementary School, the community would pitch a tent and teaching and learning would go on without a hitch because of this wonderful community.
The 76-page report never mentions the value of community. One can't place a numerical value on this gift.
