Schools are the heart of our community.
We take a great deal of pride in our schools. They’re well-maintained, well-staffed and readily available for the public use. They’re the foundation Hermiston has been built on.
Now we have the opportunity to expand that foundation by approving the construction of two new elementary schools and a high school annex.
This will allow the schools to function how they’re supposed to — with right-sized classrooms and enough space for rapidly growing student enrollment.
A new elementary school on Theater Lane and a larger Rocky Heights will alleviate the pressure on the other four elementary schools, and the extra classroom space at the high school will give our students the classroom space they need without building a second high school.
Join me in supporting our Hermiston schools and approving Measure 30-130 in November.
