Voters in the Santa Clarita Valley on Tuesday were willing to keep paying property taxes on an existing school bond, but balked at a new tax to build elementary school classrooms. A ballot proposal in the Sulphur Springs Union School District asked voters in the rapidly growing Canyon Country area to fund new classrooms by extending an existing general obligation bond instead of raising taxes. Unofficial results showed the $20.

A third district is considering a fee to bus students to school this fall to partly offset a nearly $300,000 deficit for transportation services. The Sulphur Springs Union School District proposal would charge students $100 per year. Families would pay $75 per year to bus a second child and $50 for a third. "I believe the board is very serious about adopting this. We have a quarter-million-dollar-plus deficit in our transportation budget," Sulphur Springs Supt. Robert Nolet said.

Instead of criticizing the holiday program of the Sulphur Springs Union School District ("School's Holiday Program Criticized Over Christian References," Dec. 9), the Kruskol family and Rabbi Gary Greenebaum should have commended the superintendent for his professionalism and commitment. The program reflects the religious traditions of the nation. They should appreciate the school's effort to include recognition of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. Supt. Robert Nolet's decision not to cancel the Christmas holiday program, as requested by the family, was an affirmation of the perception that we are a religious people.

In what could be a harbinger of change throughout the rapidly growing Santa Clarita Valley, a crowded elementary school in Newhall will switch to a year-round schedule next year. Trustees of the Newhall School District, citing the need to accommodate a growing student population, voted Monday night to begin year-round classes at Meadows Elementary School on July 1, 1990. Under a year-round system, different groups of students attend school on rotating schedules, thereby reducing the number of students on campus at any one time.
