  1. What do these news channels have against D2? You NEVER see D2 in their stories. Panorama went down for COVID last week and the kids not in the affected cohort were able to go back today, the effected cohort can’t go back until after fall break. Giberson went down yesterday. But did you see them mentioned on any news channel? Nope. D2 is the most marginalized district in at least Colorado Springs/El Paso County. You would think they didn’t exist judging by the news stations. Absolutely ridiculous. You can’t just get rid of an entire district because they aren’t a “rich” district.
