However, the turf is insignificant when you look at the big picture of the bond. The largest portion of the spending will go toward necessary improvements and updates to create a safe and proper academic environment where our schools can continue to operate in excellence. The proposed updates will address many needs — for some it’s about the chemistry labs, for others it might be about the air conditioning — but the fact of the matter is, it’s about an antiquated learning environment that is addressed with this bond in its entirety.
Whether you have kids in school now, will have kids in school one day or your kids have graduated and grown up, consider that every child needs and deserves an updated, safe place to learn. No one wants to pay more taxes, but the success of our schools is a big part of what supports our property values and makes Rockville Centre such a wonderful town to live in. Please join us in voting “yes” on March 19.
