A call to action for our community

Letters can be printed from here 
or are available at school sites. Please return them to school sites or the district office by February 17. We are asking community members not to mail them. We would like to collect them and deliver them to the state in a large stack. Our Assemblymember Catharine Baker has offered to walk them to the Governor's Office with our Board President.
Thank you Dublin families for your support!
