Give us a second break

Dear Editor:We are a resort community. Yes, even some of us who live downvalley are slaves to the tourist industry.Yet the Roaring Fork School District does not consider the needs of 30-40 percent of its customers when they set the school calendars. Our spring break is during the ski season, when a large portion of the community is unable to vacation.Steamboat has successfully created two week-long breaks, one in February and one in April after the lifts close. If you feel as strongly as I do that the school district should consider adding a second break after the lifts close, please contact them and let them know. You can find their contact information on their website: SimecekCarbondale
