Safe Transportation for our Kids

Michelle Inman started this petition to Superintendent Vigo County School Corporation (Transportation) and

To provide transportation for Devaney Elementary School (Terre haute Indiana) that have to walk south on Brown Avenue to get to Hulman Street.

We are asking for a centrally located bus stop for the children that attend Devaney from Birch Grove, Birch Run and Hulman Way subdivisions. Either it be on the corner of Hulman and Brown Ave or somewhere locally close..

The school corporation expects our young children Kindergarten through 5th to walk 1 plus miles to and from school on Brown Ave (South of Devaney elementary).
They expect the parents to compromise their jobs or even home school their children because there is a 1 mile rule.. Rules are made to be broken when it comes to the safety of our children.

It is entirely to dangerous to expect a elementary aged child to walk right at a mile PLUS to and from each way on a major thoroughfare in town with no sidewalks and no crossing guards.. This is a narrow road to begin with and cars fly up and down this road even pulling off into the grass to avoid oversized pot holes.. As an adult I am very cautious and leary to walk down this stretch of road. We are told that the safety of our children is #1 outside providing quality education, but expecting this shows the lack of standing behind your motto.

We ask you to please provide a bus to stop somewhere in the vicinity of Hulman and Brown Avenue to pick these children up who lives in these 3 subdivisions. We feel there are plenty of busses from that school that travel this road.

The reason I have decided to start this is because I have made numerous attempts to contact them through phone and via emails to numerous individuals and I have yet to receive a response.

Thank You for your time
