It's time for the residents of the Bloomfield Hills school district to come together and vote yes for a high school that will meet our children's needs for the 21st century.
The decision has been made to close the current Andover and Lahser high schools and make one Bloomfield Hills High School in the fall of 2013. By unifying the schools, the district will be saving $2.4 million annually. However, the current 50 year old edifice at Andover cannot accommodate the incoming students and needs a lot of renovation. Our children deserve a newly modernized school equipped with the technology needs of today comparable to schools in our neighboring districts.
Voting down this very reasonable plan will cause one high school to be split
in two old buildings that are both in dire need of costly repairs. A vote yes
is a vote for our children and our community's future. Please join me in
voting yes on May 8!
