Take Your Acorn on Vacation

Local pool closing not acceptable

The closing of the Calabasas and Agoura aquatic programs is unacceptable. If water polo and swim are cut, then every other sport should be cut as well.

Keep aquatics program afloat

I believe the Agoura High School and Calabasas High School pool closures should be taken off the list of cuts until alternatives can be explored.
