My wife, the late Faith Thorgeirson, taught at the Masset Elementary/Secondary School and I do NOT recall her ever mentioning any of the problems which are being put forth by various parents.
I think the parents and others who are against the amalgamation of the two schools should be listened to and their concerns answered fully, if at all possible. Not knowing the condition of the high school it’s pretty difficult to agree or disagree with any decision to amalgamate.
There will be those who strongly oppose whatever decision is accepted by the school district and it is my hope that whichever way it goes it will be to the benefit of the students and Masset/Massett.
I wish you luck in your deliberations and decision.
