Vote NO on Overflow and Additional Modular Units at Highcroft Drive Elementary

482 Signatures Goal: 750

As one of of the most crowded elementary schools, in the most rapidly growing part of Wake County we urge the board to not push more students and more modular units in. Continuing to designate Highcroft as an overflow school will greatly disrupt the learning environment, challenge our health and fitness programs, and compromise campus safety.

The main building is full and the only space left for another round of required modular units would be on the existing playground/field space that is also used for PE and our community social and fundraising space.

During a time when we're focus on making campuses more secure, and protecting our students these modulars are more difficult to monitor and would sit on space that backs up to public trails the go through the woods.

We understand the challenge of finding more space in our overcrowded areas that need more schools, but we already have the most modular units in the area. In the Western Area 2014/15 Review provided by WCPSS, we have the highest 2013/14 percent crowding at 114.6%.

Cramming more students and modulars into an already crowded school doesn't make sense. We should never compromise learning and safety.

    My 8-yr old is in the modular units all day, gets to school at 9:00am, eats lunch at 10:30 (due to overcrowding), and is starving by the time she gets home at 4:00.
