    Received the following notice from the KP Parents' Assoc. this morning.

    It was mentioned that USPS will be closing at CGA and other colleges as well.

    Leave and pick-up packages, get assistance in mailing, provide Priority Mailing supplies, and figuring out proper postage.

    That sounds like everything you want to do at a post office, right?

    What are they losing by having them leave? :confused:

    From what I understand, the only thing they'll lose out on is buying stamps & doing certified letters & such. I feel sure parents will just send a book of stamps here & there if needed. Its not like those Mids write a lot anyhow right? :biggrin:

    True, and most postage can be purchased and printed on-line as well.

    Well nothings free, and contracted services certainly aren't. USPS is feeling the pressure across the board.

    As did fuel prices, all with less people using USPS packages to send mail. Of course, there's also email these days.

    We can't pay the Postal Service, but we can afford to to buy car companies... :rolleyes:

    Maybe the Academy will stop having rashes of mail theft with this change....doubt it though. Seems like once every 5-10 years some mailroom clerk gets busted for stealing our mail.
