A yes vote for the replacement levy is a win


February 1, 2024

To the Editor, 

I won’t hesitate to vote yes on the Waitsburg School District’s Educational Programs and Operations Levy on Feb. 13. This replacement levy funds our preschool, extracurricular activities (including athletics), transportation and technology. 

I brag on Waitsburg School District often, singing the praises of having half-day preschool for children ages 3 to 5, at no extra cost to in-district parents. Waitsburg preschoolers are ready for kindergarten, equipped with the skills they need for classroom success. 

Unfortunately, Waitsburg does not have a single licensed daycare and our school district has a preschool program that provides a safe, secure learning environment. This special program allows parents and caregivers to continue to participate in our local workforce. It’s a win for our children and for our local economy.

With support,
