    My kids sports and classes have been canceled this week. If there is a strike I will be crossing the picket lines and continue to volunteer in classes. I pray all parent volunteers continue to do the same! God knows our children will not understand what is going on, but they will be scared. Familiar faces will be so important for them!

    Is there a list of demands from the teachers union? As tax payers we should be able to have access to the demands and how much it will cost the district. Thanks

    Why did the schools shut down the gyms for club sports and afterschool activities? The classified employees are not on strike! The taxpayers are paying the classified employees who are, i assume, still getting payed. Now all youth basketball and other afterschool activities are cancelled. Can someone tell me why? This should have nothing to do with the certified employees going on strike. What gives?

    The teachers care about the kids?? That is why they closed down @ noon on Wednesday?
    And…where does the money come from to open a headquarters on Hawthorne??
    And…they ask the district to pay for 95% of their insurance. It has been over the last few years that Pers has been asking that individuals pay more out of pocket for their benefits. 5% does not cut it.

  6. Matt West says:

    So I know teachers must have a masters degree but for some reason they can’t figure out that the schools are not getting anymore money they keep getting cut but the teachers expect more. No business would ever give raises if they were not gaining any more profits. Figure it out teachers all you are doing is hurting the children!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
