LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Use what you have already

To all the members of the school board,

I just learned of the plans for two new high schools and a replacement for Oakboro school.

I am totally against this and any other building replacement until the board approves the use of the existing building it already has built and paid for.

There is a fine building at Ridgecrest that is maintained with taxpayer money and has not been used for years.

It needs to be put into use before anything else is considered. Also, the list of open jobs on the website looks like staffing is an issue already.

Remodel first and build as a last resort.
