Plaintiffs need to understand damage being done with expensive suit

  • May 25, 2016 at 1:30AM

As a Vashon resident with a child in the district school system, I would like to express my shock and outrage with the amounts that have been requested in the recent lawsuit that has been filed against the Vashon school district. These sums would be totally inappropriate even if the allegations were true (and that is a big if).

What a glorious spring we're having. I'll bet you've seen tons of kids out and about, reveling in nature on our beautiful island. You'd be amazed by how much these kids know about their natural environment. A lot of that knowledge comes from their own adventuring, but think how much more children understand and appreciate the natural world when those outdoor adventures are paired with science classes at school.

I have some thoughts about the editorial calling for a mock crash event at Vashon High School ("Schools, community need to talk about drunk driving," May 4.) While I can completely appreciate the intention and desire behind hosting such an event, it's important to know that mock crashes fall under the category of scare tactics and are not best practice in drug and alcohol prevention.

Congratulations to the boys' high school soccer team, who placed second in league and earned a home playoff game! Their achievement marks months of sacrifice and hard work where they learned to work together as a team.
