Letter to the editor: Choice most important

To the editor:

In the “age of disruptions” none of us anticipated this new reality: our schools across the state having no consensus and the very true divide we are seeing in our communities.

With the recent email from the school district that outlines the options that will play out over the next four and a half months, I can write with clear knowledge that nobody likes this, despite all the evidence swaying the decisions.

As a parent, I write in solidarity that Lawrence will persist. I also encourage everyone to stay flexible, honor choice and keep persistently asking the questions.

Having choice is most important during this time, in addition to having consistent, fluid communication about what will occur and when to make the right decisions for our own families.

As we proceed forward, keep grace and choice.

Kay Emerson,
