HRCE refuse to do anything to bring back the Courtesy Bus for those that attend Sackville Heights Elementary which is creating an incredibly unsafe walking environment for our kids. Many parents have reached out to
Lisa Blackburn and Brad Johns, who say their hands are tied, or just do not respond at all. They are suggesting students walk along Sackville Drive and take the paved path to the school - which is great, except that the path has no winter maintenance. If children walk down through Crossfield and onto Melham, they encounter no crosswalk, no sidewalks (once they reach Melham), traffic of parents dropping their kids off/parking on the road plus a Metro Transit Bus driving through. In the winter especially, this is an absolute disaster and an accident waiting to happen. SHES has done a wonderful job at trying to reduce congestion, but it still isn't enough and it's time for someone to take responsibility. In a response from the HRCE Transportation Review Board, "While there are limitations to the quality of some pedestrian routes to the school, there are routes that have adequate pedestrian infrastructure that are shorter than the minimum distance specified in the Student Transportation Policy." - This is simply 100% not true and if anyone took the time to walk this "adequate" route, especially in the snow, they would see that it is indeed, not adequate. There is a very simple solution to this problem - BRING THE COURTESY BUS BACK TO ALL STUDENTS IN SUNSET RIDGE.
