Stonegate kids go to JTMS

This petition had 485 supporters

We the Stonegate Community want to keep sending our kids to JTMS middle school in IUSD. We live right by the Jeffrey Trail. It is obvious that the city planned the trail for kids from the communities along the trail to go to JTMS without having to cross any busy street. This was much appreciated by the residents. It is one of the reasons we purchased our homes inside Stonegate community. Stonegate belongs to the JTMS school zone by design. We have been sending our kids to this school since its day one. The parent community has become the extended family of JTMS by working with our respectful IUSD school staffs and supported the school's growth with our volunteer hours every day. We have witnessed the school grow since its inception to what it is today and our older kids graduated with great pride in JT Jets.

The proposed four options are the same for Stonegate community. We will not be able to accept this one-option choice. We ask Board of Education to reconsider, and we love to work with the committee with additional options.  

Benefits of keeping Stonegate with JTMS:

·         Safety of the children as they do not need to cross any busy streets when traveling to and from school

·         Less traffic congestion which is big concern of every resident in Irvine

·         Less air pollution

·         Family coherence of sending both old and young siblings to the same middle school

We the Stonegate community sign this petition to continue to send our kids to JTMS middle school. 

Thank you for your support.
