Fix the KeHS practice field lights for our band!!!
Fellow band alumni, and anyone who cares, we need your help if you can. The lights on the practice field are out! Our kids,are practicing in the dark, or the lights of our cars and the atv. My son tripped last week over a flag because of the lack of light, WITH his bass drum on! There have been orders to get them fixed, even a donation a few years back of lights AND labor but the ksd denied the donation. Our band is awesome, small, but awesome and they need the lights to help them get even more awesome and stay safe! Please sign the petition to get the school district to fix the lights!!! The picture is the ATV with its lights on to help the kids see while picking up.
Kennewick School District has this on their website as their mission and goals...
To provide a safe environment in which every student reaches his or her highest potential and graduates well prepared for success in post-secondary education, work and life.
Our first priority is the safety of Kennewick School District students and staff.Ninety percent of students report that they feel safe at school on our annual student safety survey.Annually, reportable injuries by staff are held to fewer than forty, and accepted claims are held to fewer than forty-five.
Our kids do not feel safe with these lights out. So the KSD mission and goals are not in play here, and our kids need tofeel safe and secure. These lights have been out the whole 2014 marching season, and previous seasons as well.
