The Bears or my child's school?
Oswego School District officials announced last week that open houses will be held at Oswego High School and Oswego East High School on Sunday, Sept. 29. Times for the open houses have yet to be announced.
The open houses will give school district residents an opportunity to view the multi-million dollar additions that contractors for the district have completed over the past year.
To assure the largest possible public attendance at the open house, we would encourage school district officials to schedule the open houses sometime after 3 p.m. that Sunday afternoon. That way, the open houses will not conflict with the Chicago Bears game against the Detroit Lions, which will begin at noon. Though most everyone says they value education, if given a choice between watching the usually mediocre Bears or visiting their child's newly expanded school, we think most parents will choose the Bears game.
