Ramsay school repair plea

I am writing in regard to the Mt. Pleasant School Board’s decision not to move forward with the Ramsay renovation proposal. I am disappointed that this project was shelved.

As a parent of a student at Ramsay, I am concerned about conditions there. I commend Tara Leeder for speaking up for the concerns and safety of the children at Ramsay and for being a voice for the children.

I urge the board not to shelve this topic for too long. If code regulations are going to get tougher and increasingly more difficult to comply with, maybe that is a reason to move sooner rather than later with Ramsay renovations.

The school board has very difficult decisions to make, and I pray that its members have the strength to make them in the best interests of the children in our schools. I want to thank them for their service to our children and our community.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
