‘Stupid’ school decision

This is ridiculous. I grew up here, and I have never heard of anything so stupid.  (William S. Hart Union High School District officials) need to save $40,000. $40,000 between six schools is less than $7,000 per school.

I am not asking for an elaborate graduation (for eighth-graders), but the students need to be honored for their hard work.

We all have cut back, including the students, but the district seems to think it’s OK to just cancel it and keep spending on the things that are a waste.

Free breakfast for the whole family, free lunch if you make less than $60,000 per year — give me a break. Let these deadbeat parents buy a loaf of bread, gallon of milk and a jar of peanut butter.

That’s what my parents did when I went to Wiley Canyon, and what I do as a parent. Why is it that we take care of the ones who don’t care, and the ones who work hard and give us no trouble get more and more taken away?

All we as parents are asking for is a graduation with a stage, a band and chairs. All six junior highs have that.

It is not the students’ fault that the district decided to start making the graduation fancy and start wasting money instead of saving it.

The board better come up with a resolution before next Wednesday, March 31, or there is going to be a revolution in Santa Clarita.
