Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
Thank you for bringing attention to the Readsboro Central School. While your article made note of how one particular parent wants a better education for her child, we think your story genuinely lacked any sort of justice to Readsboro and the attention the school actually...
To the Editor,
To Readsboro residents: As you are aware, there was a petition submitted to initiate a vote to close our school. There were 41 signatures signed on, representing  a cross section of residents. Just because they signed  does not mean they are voting to close. There are people...
To the Editor,
I’ve represented Dover as a school board director for five years.  It’s been an honor to serve the River Valleys School District and I hope you will give me the opportunity to continue to serve.

To the Editor,
On April 4 Gov. Phil Scott will proclaim April as Child Abuse Prevention Month in Vermont. Prevent Child Abuse Vermont and the Vermont Department for Children and Families recognize that all community members have a role in ensuring children have positive experiences and...
To the Editor,
At first glance it may not be clear how Senate Bill 66 and House bill 258 are threats to families and children across Vermont, but it’s worth taking a moment to explore. I was raised and educated in good public schools: my high school diploma is from a public school as are...
To the Editor,
On behalf of The Deerfield Valley Food Pantry board of directors I want to thank American Flatbread, of Dover, for sponsoring a very successful fundraiser to benefit the food pantry.
