Petition for Metuchen Board of Education (High School Busing)

To whom it may concern:

Currently as you are aware, our children in Metuchen high school do not have public school busing as a mode of transportation. Most parents struggle with drop-off and pick-up when their children makes the transition from middle school to high school. Some kids are spending over 30 mins each day walking on very risky and busy streets such as Grove and Route 27. Instead of waiting until something tragic happens, we the concern parents of Metuchen would like to work with the board of education to map out a few options as to how such risk could be remediated. While we are all aware of the fact that it is not required by law to have public transportation for high school students when the distance from home to school is less than 2 miles, we are also well aware that there is no written policy preventing it.

I discussed with lots of parents, and they agree that adding public transportation would be helpful for everyone in the school district, and they are willing to pay some extra money if needed.

Please kindly consider our request.

Thanks for your help.
