To our Puyallup staff,
In five days ballots for the upcoming School Construction and
Facility Improvements bond issue will begin arriving in mail boxes.
There has been a great deal of information shared with our community
regarding the very real need that exists to relieve overcrowding and to
deal with the very rapid growth within our community.
I cannot stress strongly enough how important it is for our staff,
parents, and community members who are registered voters in the Puyallup
School District to take the time to vote and to send in their ballots.
I would respectfully ask each and every staff member to take the time
this week to remind every parent, student, and community member with
whom we come into contact to be sure to vote.
As a district we have made every effort to deal as proactively as
possible with the intense pressures of student population growth in our
schools. As we are all well aware, students who are seniors today were
in kindergarten the last time a bond measure passed.
It is extremely important that the bond measure is decided by an
informed electorate that expresses their desire for the future of the
community by casting their ballots. We must make every effort as
informed community members to make sure that indifference and inaction
do not determine the future for our students in Puyallup.
Please take the time to inform our parents, neighbors, and community
members of the facts (linked below) and the established need. Please
take the time to cast your vote and urge all of the members of your
family who are registered to do so.
Thank you for your time and consideration of this request.
