I hope all students have a wonderful - and safe school year.

I want to especially THANK all the teachers we have in Pleasanton for their service to our community.

You do so much to educate our children. I can't even imagine standing in front of 32-33 (or more) students day in, day out - creating daily lesson plans, and being a mentor to so many....


My congratulations to you.

Rather unnecessary comment reference the Police Department near the end up the article. Shows an obvious prejudice against the officers who work hard to protect us. Sounds like one of the persons who wrote the article was driving too fast recently in Pleasanton and putting others at risk.

Thanks Pleasanton PD for keeping us safe. These negative remarks from the Weekly are from the minority.

The PPD should be supportive, not punitive by giving out tickets. First day back is hectic and confusing, cops giving tickets adds to the chaos. Giving direction and warnings maybe helpful, but cop cars and flashing lights only add to the backup.

Everyone is doing their best given the traffic burden, caused by PUSD, that is created by crowed campuses and no busses.

Officers with helpful supportive attitudes would make everyone feel we are working together.

I'm also glad we have "enforcers"....I would like to ask that they spend some time on W Las Positas and Foothill - I can't tell you how many times in the past 4 days that I have witnessed cell phones in use and texting going on while teenagers were driving near the school-if I have to live by the rules, certainly we can demand it from our youth...
