Poll finds Hooksett split over moving students from Manchester high schools to Pinkerton
Kim Swiderski, of West Bank Road, has three children in the district, and said that she agrees that while it was a good idea to leave Manchester, Pinkerton is just too far.
Tammy Pelletier, of Mason Avenue, also has three children in the district, but instead of sending children from all over town to one location, she said she believes kids should be able to go wherever they want.
Julia Penrod, of Lancelot Drive, is entering her senior year at Manchester High School West, and was adamant that for many students Pinkerton is just not a realistic possibility.
Rebecca Durand, of Alice Avenue, recently graduated from West and has a sister entering her freshman year there.
Kyle Macey of Park Lane also recently graduated from the Manchester School District and has a brother still in the district.
"I was not happy when we terminated the contract. I have no issues with Central, and Manchester is so much closer. Pinkerton is just too far away for me it just would not work. Manchester realistically is the only option for (my children) unless Hooksett opens its own high school," Massey said.
"Pinkerton is well worth it," Lachance said.
"I understand things have gotten much worse in Manchester, but I am not sure how convenient Pinkerton is; that might not be the answer, but I don't know," Colle said.
