Get It Straight, Howie!
I usually do not respond to articles in newspapers. However, there is a need to correct Mr. Howard Schwach's statement in his School Scope column of February 5, 2000.
There is no plan to build a middle school on Rockaway Beach boulevard and Beach 99 street across from St. Camillus. My concern is that this error on Mr. Schwach's part will cause undue concern for our community.
I would hope in the future Mr. Schwach will be cognizant of his responsibility to check all facts, rather than put incorrect information into his column. I also would suggest that if he is going to write articles on Community School District 27, that he contact the Office of the Community Superintendent to make sure that his comments are true and factual.
Mr. Schwach's opinion is one thing, but Mr. Schwach's errors regarding the community are another.
