One can’t place a numerical value on community

To the Editor:

I attended the meeting at Guilderland High School regarding the use of buildings in the district.  I was troubled by a comment made by Mr. Seversky.

More than once, he mentioned that the middle-school building was our greatest asset.  I strongly disagree with this.

Our greatest asset is our children, their families, our teachers, and our community.

If an act of nature destroyed Altamont Elementary School, the community would pitch a tent and teaching and learning would go on without a hitch because of this wonderful community.

The 76-page report never mentions the value of community. One can't place a numerical value on this gift.
