WEST BRANCH IS UNFAIR, KEEP THE METAL SLIDE THERE!
Superintendent Michelle Dutrow, business Manager Jason McMillen, elementary principle Mark Mitchell and West Branch board members are plotting to tear down the cherished metal slide of the West Branch playground because they view the slide as a safety concern. The slide has been around for over 40 years and has been a part of the community's childhood and specifically the childhood of the students at West Branch Area. The slide has safely stood along the hill for decades and still continues to reside there today as sterdy as ever. Mitchell had admitted that there have been zero instances of a person being seriously or even minorly injured as a result of the slide. Despite the slides clean record and longstanding structure, the West Branch school board and authority figures want the slide out of their hair with little regards for what removing the slide will do to the community. Why do they feel it is necessary to deconstruct our precious slide and topple our childhood memories with little valid reason? Sign this petition to save our beloved slide by stopping it from being wrongly demolished!
