DLHS swimming graduation requirement set it apart

We were very disappointed in the school board’s decision to drop the swimming requirement for graduation from DLHS. In our opinion, it was something that set our town and school apart.

We know that variances were available for special circumstances already, so this did not have to happen. How many lives did that rule save over the years? How many lives did it improve?

It appears that this year some people didn’t like the rule but had to comply. We really hope that did not influence this decision. It would be a shame if it did. — Rick and Sue Livermore, Detroit Lakes
