Carbondale schools need face-lift

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:Our family has been a longtime resident of Carbondale. Our four children have and are currently going through the Carbondale public school system. During this time we have seen a great need for new and updated school facilities. For example, we have outgrown our current classrooms and outdated high school auditorium. Our children need new computer labs; updated science labs; one gym is not enough for the present demand; and the cafeterias are obsolete and worn. It is time for Carbondale to have new school buildings to meet the needs of our growing population. These are a few reasons why we support the upcoming bond issue and mill levy, 3A and 3B. We understand that there are some internal issues within our school, but the fact remains that our buildings are too small and old for our ever-changing community. School buildings are a reflection of our town. It would be nice to get our children out of modular trailers and back in buildings with the rest of the student body. So please get the facts on 3A and 3B. Let’s all vote yes and make our community proud. Brent and Roxanne LoughCarbondale
