Letters to the Editor

In 1976, the Guilderland School Board of Education considered the possibility of closing the Altamont Elementary School due to declining enrollment and to avoid an increase in the school tax rate.

To the Editor:

Altamont has been my home for the past 30 years, and is now the place I plan on raising my son. Superintendent Marie Wiles recently felt it necessary to use her “power” to hire a generously paid consultant to make suggestions to address the fiscal concerns in the Guilderland School District.

To the Editor: 

I read with great dismay your article about the possible closing of the Altamont Elementary School.  My husband and I moved to Altamont in 2005, and, although we are relatively new residents, we love our home and value our community here in Altamont. 

To the Editor:

The Guilderland Parks Department deserves a big "Thank You!"
