    When David Lee talks you can’t hardly hear him. Is there anyway to fix this? Great job of showing the two schools.

    Kolae, Thanks for the comments. Not sure on the volume. When I play it there is no problem. Do you have external speakers or internal? Makes a big difference. – The Leader

    I appreciate so much the love and energy Principal Lee has for what he does. He has worked hard to build an educational environment that blesses the lives of children. The Mtn View custodian needs to be commended for the exceptional job he does as well. Thanks to the Leader director & editor for allowing the community to be educated as to the strengths of Mountain View Elementary.

    I beleive that Mt. View is a wonderful school that is needed in this area. The building itself is able to house more students than some others and is in better shape than some that are in the district that have been named as under consideration for closure. The parents in the Mt. View area are very interested in the students at Mt. View. There are many volunteers that support the school. Parents are involved and we are not transient as the school board has suggested.
    David Lee has made huge contributions to Mt. View as well as all the teaching staff. It is a joy to have such great teachers to work with our children. I am grateful that my children have had the opportunity to have been at Mt. View with this great staff. I support the closure of a school, however, it should be one that is in greater need of repair than is Mt. View. I do not support closing a school that could accomodate both student and teachers and then have to bring in trailers to house our students at a school, which is in need of millions of dollars of repair, which will raise our taxes, while we could be fiscally responsible and use the best that there is available that would meet the requirements for students and teachers, regardless of which that one is. I hope that the school district will not make this decision on pure emotions. If Mt. View is the oldest and most in repair, then I would support its closure, however, we have seen that is NOT the case! Thanks for the great job on reporting this issue.

    Do you ever wonder what is going on behind the scenes? Who has land this time to sell to the school district when another school will need to be built? Closing Bunderson is just the first step needed to build a new school somewhere. Bunderson is fine, it just hasn’t been given any money to do anything like the others. All part of the plan and politics. Dirty deeds, done dirt cheap comes to mind.
