Many of Governor’s students come from different parts of the country and around the world. The parents of these students are intrusting the academy with the safety of their child. I would hope it’s in the best interest of the academy to be able to reassure these parents that their children are safe 24/7 and that the campus is not situated in a town with diminished emergency services. With the current holes in the local fire and police budgets, the academy may no longer be able to make this promise.
The academy is a philanthropic organization with a large endowment behind it. Hopefully they will see, as they have in the past, that the town of Newbury is in need of their assistance now more than ever.
