I went to FV and graduated from WPHS. I dont live in the district now but I sure wish I did. I am in complete support of the school board on this issue.

Oh yeah! give those flaked out Fairview teachers guns. It's so much easier than putting a lock on the door. Try talking to some of these nut jobs and see if you still approve of them packing guns.Half the staff out there are borderline nuts.
