Vote yes for
Hermiston bond
I am writing in favor of
the current Hermiston school
bond. All three of my chil-
dren attended Hermiston
schools through early 2000
and graduated from Herm-
iston High. The district has
only continued to grow by
leaps and bounds since their
Two schools my children
attended have been torn
down and rebuilt, which
was desperately needed. I
remember them being sent
home one day from the old
West Park building because
the heating system was not
working. The old Armand
Larive was an interesting
structure also and they all
attended class in modular
classrooms even back then.
Unfortunately, in today’s
world, using modular class-
rooms has become unsafe
and puts the students and
teachers in those buildings
at more risk. Currently there
are 34 modular classrooms
in use across our elementary
campuses. At our district’s
rate of growth, it is antici-
pated that 56 modular class-
rooms could be needed by
The district is literally
busting at the seams. When
thinking how to vote on this
bond, consider the future and
safety of this community and
our children. We want to pro-
vide enough safe space to be
a good learning environment
and promote giving back to
the community like so many
graduates have.
This community has been
so supportive of growth in
the schools in the past and I
hope that continues with this
bond. Please vote yes on the
upcoming school bond.

the heels for the com-

summer sausage, which
garnered reserve cham-
