Heather Lenore started this petition to OVSD School Board and

UNACCEPTABLE - NO BUSES FOR KIDS in OVSD Schools

Families and Community members that live in Ocean View School District (Includes Huntington Beach, Fountain Valley, Midway City, Huntington Harbour, and Westminster).

Last year, under covid measures when ½ of the families were not attending in-person instruction, the OVSD school board slyly cut school transportation for all of our kids except for special needs children and children from the Oak View neighborhood. It was not well communicated and came as a shock to many after returning to in-person instruction this fall. 

The school board members are elected and paid to serve and represent the families in the school district.  The board is responsible for providing access to a proper and safe environment for our kids to have an education.

Without buses to transport the kids it is causing a disaster for drop off and pickup of our kids in bedroom neighborhoods. Parents are racing to drop off their children and get to work, there is an influx of vehicles, many double parking, all creating serious safety issues.

Single parents, and dual income families are stressed having to juggle working and trying to figure out how to pick up their kids in the middle of a work day.

Some families live close to 4 miles from their home schools, if not more.  Walking or biking to school is not an option for some of these children who are too young and immature.  With busy streets to cross including Warner avenue, and rising random acts of violence from vagrants, our children are navigating a mine field. 

It’s unacceptable and unconscionable not to provide transportation for our elementary and middle school students ages 5-13.

Please sign our petition, to voice our demand that the school board provide proper transportation to all OVSD school kids. 

Thank you.
