Regarding "School is going to the dogs" (Mailbag, March 31): If you think people are ignoring the "no dogs" signs at Dwyer Middle School, how about the "no skateboarding on school property" sign Dwyer has posted at its skateboard park, a.k.a. the amphitheater?
While there was a time when school administrators actually tried to enforce the skating ban, they have since completely given up on that responsibility and now allow skaters unrestricted use of their facilities. And why shouldn't they? After all, it's not the school's administrators who have to hear the relentless noise of slamming, scraping, screeching skateboards late at night. That's only a problem for the school's neighbors.
However, when the inevitable happens and someone is seriously injured at Dwyer, the school district will feel the financial sting of that liability lawsuit for years to come. Until then, the signs at Dwyer are just an ironic joke and not meant to be taken seriously.
