Letter: Las Lomitas teachers still lack contractAs a parent of three children attending Las Lomitas and La Entrada, I am incredibly proud of the district's students for achieving in two straight years the top California API scores.
I am equally proud of the teachers who work tirelessly, educating our boys and girls.
What many district parents may not know, however, is that these exceptional teachers worked the entire year without a settled contract. They still do not have one. Yet they selflessly continue to put the needs of their students above their own.
While I am deeply grateful for this, I worry we may lose these superb educators to other top-notch districts. I encourage district parents who value the investment we're making in our children's education to contact the school board and superintendent's office, and urge swift passage of a contract that will maintain the excellence in education with which we are so richly blessed.
