Everett Schools bond: Show support for education with yes vote

These past few months of quarantine and isolation have been challenging in so many ways, but for parents of school children, it has been monumentally more difficult. Parents trying to manage Zoom class sessions, monitoring homework and remembering how to do various math and history lessons, while also juggling life, errands and work (during a pandemic, no less!) has shined a bright light of the importance that our public school system plays in our daily lives and the advancement of our children.

Any parent of a school-aged child can tell you that these past few months of school closures has given them a re-found appreciation of our schools and our teachers.

How can we say thank you to these hard-working teachers and staff? By giving them the critical infrastructure needed so they can better do their jobs. Voting “approved” for Everett School District’s Bond will build the additional classrooms needed to alleviate overcrowding, replace aging and crumbling schools, improve safety and security, and provide essential educational facilities to bolster our children’s education. A well-educated workforce is crucial to a thriving economy, and it’s more important than ever to provide our children and teachers with the tools and space necessary so that Everett Public Schools can build student success for the future of our region.

Vote “approved” on Everett School District Proposition No. 1 on your Aug. 4 primary ballot.
