My daughter is a 1st grader who attends Campbellsport Elementary, she has before and after care at Kids Clubhouse. Every morning and afternoon she walks with other children from the daycare to school and back to daycare at the end of the school day. The road that these kids cross is the only road to the elementary school in Campbellsport. The crosswalk they cross is not at an intersection and the city does not employ crossing guards at this crosswalk.  The teachers from the elementary school and the daycare , step out into the crosswalk so our children can cross, hopefully safely.  After doing some research, I found that 80 percent of child pedestrian deaths occur at non intersection locations.  I have spoken with teachers that help our children cross, and they have said that they have already been halfway in the crosswalk and a vehicle will continue to drive through.  Last year, I was fortunate to be able to drop my daughter off and pick her up at the end of the day, and I was always shocked by the amount of vehicles that stop right on the crosswalk while our children are crossing. 
I know that not one but two buses pick up children at the St. Matt’s daycare and transports them to our schools in Campbellsport. One of these buses is used only for the St. Matt’s Daycare school aged children.  I had been informed that besides our taxes paying for bus transportation, the district also receives reimbursement for children who are bussed more then 2 miles from the location of the school. St Matt’s Church is 0.6 miles from Campbellsport Elementary School, and according to the DPI the district is only reimbursed for transportation under 2 miles if it is in a hazardous area.  The city does employ crossing guards at both intersections these children would need to cross to get to the school. Upon further research, I also found information stating that the district was not reimbursed for any children bussed under 2 miles during the 2016-2017 school year.  
I am asking you to sign this petition so that the Kids Clubhouse School aged children will be bussed to and from school for their safety. It will not cost the district anymore money as the bus who picks up and drops off the St Matt’s Daycare children, could also transport the kids at Kids Clubhouse. Thank you for taking the time to read and hopefully sign this petition.
