Dear parents; This is Mr. Tavarez. I know many of you have been worried because of all the sirens by the school and some have even thought that they heard gun shots.

UPDATED BOND INFORMATION. During the community information meetings on the bond proposal, patrons asked the school district to post the updated municipal bond interest rates just prior to the bond election on March 14. Zion's Public Finance, Inc. sent an updated graph showing the interest rate trends for the past year from March 1, 2022 through March 7, 2023. They also included a slide showing a comparison between the interest rates from January (3.73%) and March 8 (3.83%). It shows how the change in rates would impact the overall tax impact per $100,000 of taxable value. This slide also shows the impact should the interest rate be 1% higher or 1% lower. As a reminder, the final interest rate if the bond is approved in March would not be locked in until the end of May. Thank you to all who have reached out to ask questions and learn more. These new slides and all other official information regarding the bond can be found on the district website (https://www.sd215.net/o/sd215/page/2023-bond-election). If you have any additional questions, please contact one of the Board members or the District Office.
