Mid-Buchanan School District Needs Safety, Security Measures


On Aug. 5, the Mid-Buchanan School District will have the opportunity once again to pass a bond that will help pay for safety and security measures at Mid-Buchanan.

One of the items included is a tornado safe room. Mid-Buchanan School District has received a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that will pay for 75 percent of the cost to build this safe room, but the district must be able to pay for the other 25 percent. Without passing this bond, the district will lose this grant, therefore losing this opportunity, opening the door for a different school to receive this grant.

Our children deserve to have someplace safe to go in the event of a tornado. Our teachers deserve to have someplace safe to protect our children should the need arise. Our community deserves to have this safety net that will also be available for their safety. Anyone traveling through our area deserves to know that there is someplace safe to go. Much like an insurance policy, we hope to never have to use this. But in the event that we do, it will be great to know that we have the means available to potentially save lives. Who knows- maybe it will be you that will be helped.

We ask that you please get out on Aug. 5 and vote "yes." We cannot afford to lose this opportunity.

Josh and Angie Springs,
