In response to Chehalis School District’s Facebook post on the new elementary school, a reader wrote: “It is so beautiful! Amazing driving by on I-5 seeing the progress! Wish our Toledo Community could pass a bond so that our kiddos in Toledo could have a school like this!”
That opportunity awaits voters once again on February’s ballot.
Citizens For Great Toledo Schools invites you: The school bond will run again on the February 13 ballot. Please come to the Bond committee meeting on Tuesday, January 16 at 6:30 pm, at the Toledo Public Library.
For those who missed the December 7, 2017 presentation by ESD’s Cal Brody on how the McCleary Decision will impact taxpayers, or the December 12, 2017 Special Meeting invitation with School Board Members to study the bond and Master Plan for more cost savings, this post on Facebook provides those new details:
Toledo School District has placed a $12.2 million bond measure on the February ballot. The district removed over $2 million in projects that were on the November measure including the track and restrooms. TMS roof will be completed with levy funds and a less-expensive solution has been found for the THS roof. More information here. https://sites.google.com/…/communi…/capital-bond-february-13
Supt. Chris Rust reiterates his willingness to meet with voters to answer questions they may have about the bond, including those posted on the updated page. Contact School District Offices during business hours to make arrangements at (360)864-6325.
Reminder: School Board Meeting* 7 p.m. January 23 @ Toledo Middle School Library. Public invited to attend. Contact District Offices if you require special accommodations.
Please note: while stakeholders are welcome to request inclusion on the School Board Meeting agenda, time considerations for regular departmental reports and business matters must be observed. The Board of Directors will conduct meetings mutually respectful of all present.
Contact District Offices to schedule agenda items requiring sizeable time requirements.

Correction: Yesterday’s post (01.11.2018 Thursday Column & Health Corner) brought this response from Toledo City Clerk Michelle Whitten: THIS IS NOT WHAT HAPPENNED!!
- Winlock sent a Letter of Intent, dated January 2, 2018 to Toledo, received January 8, 2018 at City Hall - only hours prior to Winlock City Council Meeting.
- Therefore, no Toledo officials outside of Chief of Police John Brockmueller and Toledo City Clerk Michelle Whitten knew of the Letter at the time of Monday’s Winlock City Council Meeting.
- Toledo will continue to provide law enforcement services under contract unless and until Toledo City Council receives said Letter of Intent, and considers any action. Chief Brockmueller indicated Toledo Police would continue to provide service as usual.
- Toledo did not author any Letter of Intent.
The Other Toledo regrets any inconvenience occasioned by earlier inaccuracies or omissions, and welcomes the opportunity to set the record straight.
Thanks to our readers for understanding.
