Woodridge cutting teaching positions and some sports

Because of Levy's not passing in the Woodridge Local school district the past few years, teaching positions will be cut and eliminated and sports will be cut to near OHSAA minimums per season. Cross Country Boys and girls, Golf Boys and Girls and Girls Tennis are eliminated effective immediately. Bowling boys and Girls and Wrestling are also eliminated. Boys Tennis and Track and Field are on the block for 2019. New Elementary just built and new gym at High School just finished. (Old Gym was tagged as unusable for competition by Fire Marshal so new one was mandated. Many teaching positions eliminated as well as many MS sports. All remaining sports will be pay to play. Levy will go back on the ballot, but even if passed, the Fall and Winter sports listed above will not field teams for the 2018 season. If Levy passes, sports may be brought back.

Sad Day.

Dear PD,
Because you like to sometimes make jokes I hope this is one of them.

Check the date....

The most unfunny thing about this is that it's so close to being true at many schools.

Haha April Fools. Honestly, and I say this as someone whose school has a major league rivalry with Woodridge across many sports, I would be really beyond sad if that ever did actually happen. It would be like, many of us would have been robbed of our purpose in life if that ever happened, lol. I will say this...If this ever happens, and I am in sufficient financial footing, aka, not a college student, I will personally step up and pay out of my own pocket to help prop up our own rivals track and XC programs, so that they can continue to maintain the gold standard in our league.

Such a nightmarish scenario actually did come close to actually happening down here in Coventry. If our levy did not pass last November, our district would have cut all springtime sports, including track. and if the levy did not pass again on the May ballot. Boom there goes the XC team. Fortunately, despite the best efforts by people residing in our district whom I truly feel hate kids, we rallied, got much of the Coventry Faithful mobilized over facebook and social media, and got that levy through. So yes, I know this is April Fool's. But to us, with a district that has been having financial struggles for the last 20 years, levy issues are no laughing matter here.

The name of the school is actually Woodbridge.

I'm surprised that school is still open and the CVNP has not taken possession through imminent domain.
