South Grove Safety Issue

SOUTH GROVE SAFETY ISSUE! WE ASK THE SYOSSET BOARD OF ED TO PRIORITIZE THE SAFETY OF OUR CHILDREN. ENCLOSE THE WALKWAY BETWEEN THE ANNEX AND MAIN BUILDING!

PETITION TO PRESENT TO THE SYOSSET BOARD OF ED AT 11/13 MONTHLY MEETING

The absence of an enclosed walkway connecting the South Grove Annex to the South Grove Elementary School main building exposes our children to educational, health and safety risks. We the undersigned request that these safety issues be mitigated by constructing an enclosed walkway under the Phase II Facilities Plan.

Currently, our kindergarten and first grade students make daily treks from the Annex to the main building for instruction such as art, library and physical education. What should be instruction time is spent bundling children to brave the elements, and what should be a fully protected environment is completely exposed to passersby making a safety issue for our children. When there is a school assembly or event, as many as 80 children shuttle through this exposed space. This impacts not only kindergarten and first grade students, but also upper grades and our SCOPE children that need to travel from the main building to the Annex.

We are disappointed that the Phase II Proposal does not reflect the District's reassurances that enclosing the walkway would be included in this phase of the proposal. We ask that the omission of this priority issue be corrected and that construction of a connecting structure be formally included in the Phase II proposal.

SIGN NOW FOR SAFETY!
