There needs 2 be a 3rd option: ALL grade levels need to start their days AT THE SAME TIME. Regarding shared bus fleet: completely STOP providing yellow buses for 6th grade + older! Make Middle and High schoolers take TRANSIT if they need a bus. Schools should coordinate with + pay CET to add routes

It's been proven that teenagers function better and learn better when waking up a little later in the day. I myself was home schooled and I feel making my own schedule was SO beneficial! Still to this day, not a morning person.

I was excited when they moved elementary school start times earlier because that meant I was ABLE to get my child to the bus before I had to go to work. Before that, I had to get both before and after school care and that is expensive, also harder to find now.

Elementary kids safety is more important. It's dark until 8 am in the winter. Litttle kids waiting for the school bus and dark outside just don't mix.

Neither should start before 8:30. https://www.sleepfoundation.org/school-and-sleep/later-school-start-times

Split schedules cause logistics problems for families, the schools and transportation. Why would the school board make such a dumb decision? Common sense should be a prerequisite for being a school board member.

Learn some self control and go to bed, you need more sleep plan you day so you get it. My 15 year old is always up around 5-6am by her own choice. Not to mention it helps parents if the older children are avalible to babysit earlier in the day.

All grades K-12 should start at the same time or close to for the sake of the parents.

After-school care for young children is costly and many families don't have the means to afford such care. The cost of living in the area adds to families living in poor conditions causing a lot more health concerns for young families versus the benefit of starting an earlier school day.

Because then most of them are not awake at 9 or 8 am so that is my reasoning

These kids are older easier to deal with in the mornings. Older kids can get themselves to school or the bus. Elementary kids need there parents. Single parents with more than one child need more time in the mornings!

I wouldn't say "everywhere" but considering the facts that marijuana is legal at the state level and it produces a large amount of revenue in taxes, why wouldn't you want to have that economic opportunity in Redmond? You want everyone to go buy their weed in Bend and they enjoy all the profits?

Im allergic to marihuana, CBD, hemp. But I have nothing against it. Who cares? To me they are no different than a liquor store.

It should be legal simply for the whole reason it’s been shown to help with mental issues such as PTSD, reducing physical pain, helps with those undergoing chemotherapy and the like. Recreationally, it’s a hell of a better than using tobacco products or alcohol and while it impairs, it’s not as bad.

It is ridiculous that Redmond passes on the revenue from having a dispensary here. It's not like the people of Redmond aren't going to use Marijuana just because it isn't sold here.

If they are located in communities where people smoke then the county would be able to benefit from taxing it and help support the community. Keeping the dispensary away will not keep the weed away from the town that refuses one

I don't want them anywhere, the only winners are the sellers. It's an under taxed industry. Probably as much sold on the black market as in the store front.

It is just like inviting more drunk divers on the road. Anyone that doesn't think it impairs your ability to do things are lying.

Absolutely NOT! I do not think it should have ever been legalized! The horrible policies the Demarcates put in place are destroying this country! We will not comply with their horrible socialist agenda! Lets get together and vote the Demarcates out of Oregon!!!

There is literally no proof that marijuana os bad for you unless you’re driving while impaired with it. Otherwise it’s literally been proven to help with a whole slew of health issues such as PTSD, cancer, physical pain and other issues as well
