Having a school bus for the children who live within two miles of the school can benefit the parents, the school and the community. We are asking to be heard and helped because we have concerns for our children when it comes to walking to school. We understand that we are a walking district but when parent are walking over a mile with children as young as five this becomes an issue.

A school bus will ensure less traffic for the community, less traffic on school grounds and safety for the children.

Currently there are over 100 parents dropping children off every morning and picking up every afternoon, this causes chaos for the school, for the children and for policeman patrolling the schools. This increases the risks of accidents because parents are in a rush to get to work.

With so many parents on the road we are causing heavy traffic for the rest of the community. Some of the members of our community don't have children or their children are out of school and they are subjected to this unnecessary traffic. We can help minimize this traffic by taking parents off the road by providing a bus.

One of the parents biggest issues is getting their children to school in inclement weather, when temperatures become too low as a parent we just can't allow our child to walk so far. Most parents have multiple children (some who are not in school) so we are walking with more than just a student but their siblings who have no reason to be in these weather conditions. As temperatures drop and weather becomes brutal this increases the chance of car accidents while our children try to make their way to the school. 

Safety is a huge concern for those who are currently allowing their children to walk. Kidnapping, rape, accidents, fights these are all issues that we can not ignore, these are the risks we put our children in everyday walking to school alone. This bus will make sure our children are kept safe and dropped off right at the school to minimize the risks of any safety issues for our children.

Let's not wait until something terrible happens to our children before we decide to change things. This can help the entire community and most of all ensure the safety of our children. We are not asking for a hand out we are asking for help from the Board of Education to organize a bus company the parents can rely on.

The solution to our issues would be getting a bus company for the students who live within a two mile radius of school grounds. The parents are willing to pay for their children to take the bus. If granted the bus the parents will be willing to start the bus as soon as possible. If we are not granted the access to a bus the parents will then take any actions necessary to make this a bigger issue and continue to pursue this until we are heard and something is done.
