Our children that live on Echo Drive in Sun Prairie, WI (6 kids) range in age from Kindergarten to 5th grade and they are being asked to walk to school this year. 1 mile to school and 1 mile home across busy streets with no crossing guards and streets with no side walks. My son is 5yrs old and has never been to this school before.
They have bused children form this location for the last 10 years because of the hazardous crossings. This year to all of our surprise they have chosen not to bus our children with no notification to the families in the area. This is a complete disregard of our children’s safety as nothing has changed to the route to school since last year.
We are appalled at our school district for thinking this is in the best interest of our small children. Please help us make them hear our voice. Let them know that we will fight for our children safety today, tomorrow, and for the rest of their lives.
I support the children of this community do what you know is right and keep these children safe.
