Arthur Ardolino started this petition to Dripping Springs ISD

We would like the Rim Rock community to retain its current attendance zones, namely its assignment to Sycamore Springs Middle School, for the following reasons:

1. Attendance zones already changed once.  Rim Rock was already switched from DSMS to SSMS.  What happens if we switch back to DSMS and then SSMS is expanded or Cypress MS is built? Then we’ll be transferred again?  Too much bouncing around.

2. Longest bus ride.  Our homes are the farthest away from DSMS.  When we were originally assigned to DSMS, our students were on the bus for 45-60 minutes both to and from school.  This is an extremely long time to be riding on a bus, and limits our students abilities for activities before and after school. We fought hard to have Rim rock assigned to SSMS and SSES so our students did not have to travel so far.

3. Emotional and mental health.  There will be an emotional impact on students and teachers in the school.  There are a large number of students in Rim Rock, and many of them have made friends and established relationships with teachers, directors, and coaches.

3. SSMS expansion.  SSMS was designed to be expanded to 1200 or so students.  In a few years time, both DSMS and SSMS will both be over 100% utilization.  If SSMS was expanded, there would be no need to uproot students again.  We would very much prefer this scenario.
