Relocation Of White Cliff School
By Samuel Bergeron


June 11, 2004

I was at the PTA & school board work session held on the White Cliff relocation issue.

The one concept that was almost universally embraced was that we only affect the Kids going to White Cliff, White Cliff moves, no one else and "affect adults not children". This concept has merit. As one of the policy makers that have a voice in this decision, this will be a guiding concept. I hope this makes some sense to all of you as well.

Whatever the solution will be, we will be listening closely to the faculty and parents of our White Cliff Kids as well as the school board.
