Please DON'T Change Start Time for Heritage Elementary School

This petition had 158 supporters

The Wake County School board is discussing the idea of changing the start time for Heritage Elementary School by 15 minutes. Thereby school starting at 8:25 and ending at 2:55.

Here is a link to the article for reference - Change the start of school

  • By changing the Elementary school time we are causing a carpool and traffic nightmare. We share an entrance with the Heritage Middle School. This will recreate the traffic issues that we have seen on Rogers Rd in the past
  • Students could be late if they have a sibling at a neighboring school that needs to be dropped off at the same time due to the increased amount of traffic.
  • Due to the larger amount of traffic at this proposed time the rate of accidents could increase.
  • Teachers who have students at other schools would not be able to drop them off early and make it to their schools on time
  • Our families may have to look at alternative methods of transportation due to child care issues and having to be at work by 8:00am or 8:30am
  • We currently don't have before school child care available. 
  • Parents would have to make work arrangements that they may not otherwise have to make
