Dear Big Walnut Parent:
As a reminder, Tuesday, November 7 is an important election in our community. There are many races on the ballot including a combined bond and permanent improvement levy for our schools. As you know, the upcoming election contains important races and issues. Local issues affect us all, and especially the issue that is on the ballot for our district.
Specifically, Big Walnut’s ballot issue will address the overcrowding in our buildings and it includes significant safety and security updates for each of our current school buildings. Some of you have asked where you might find more information. Simply visit our website at http://www.bwls.net/PlanningforGrowthEconomicDevelopment.aspx.
Over these many months, we have worked hard to communicate with you about the overcrowding and needs in our building. We have significant safety and security updates that are also needed and included with the ballot issue. These needs are placing significant strain on our daily operating budget, a budget intended for the day-to-day operations of our schools.
With the ballot issue, we can adequately address the overcrowding and growth while providing safety and security updates to all of our existing buildings. Without it, our district’s financial future is jeopardized and we risk having to return to voters far earlier. As I have shared many times, this issue is very important to our instructional and financial stability.
Feel free to contact me should you have any questions. Thank you for informing yourself.
Please schedule in time on your calendar now to vote in this election. You can vote in person on Election Day (Tuesday, November 7) at the polls from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Regardless, please make sure you vote.
Angela S. Pollock
