Letters to the Editor

D.W. Poppy is not that far away

Editor: I wish to respond to the letter “Langley kids should come first,” (The Times, May 13).

While I agree that Langley kids should come first, the wait list referred to is for a choice program school. I think it important to point out that the bus to D.W. Poppy from Fort Langley is an 11-minute ride, not the 40 minutes indicated in the letter.

Having had my children at Poppy for the last five years, the timeline has never been an issue. All students on a Langley School District bus pay a fee. D.W. Poppy is Fort Langley’s catchment area school.

Jackie Cook,

Langley
