HAWTHORN DISTRICT 73 MANDATORY GRANDFATHERING OF SIBLINGS
We are petitioning for Mandatory Grandfathering of ALLSiblings into the schools that their Older Siblings are currently enrolled at.
Dual Language is slated to continue to grandfather all current and incoming siblings together and we want to be offered that same right.
We are calling for consistent application of district policy to allow our children to attend school together in the same buildings!!
We understand the importance of keeping neighborhoods together, but it is far more important to keep families together.
You cannot keep neighborhoods together by dividing the families that reside in those very neighborhoods.
THERE IS NO REASON WHY OUR CHILDREN SHOULD BE PREVENTED FROM OR DENIED THE EXPERIENCE OF ATTENDING GRADE SCHOOL WITH THEIR SIBLINGS!!
FOR ANY OF YOU WHO HAD SIBLINGS IN K-5 WHILE YOU ATTENDED, WHETHER OLDER OR YOUNGER, THINK ABOUT HOW DIFFERENT YOUR SCHOOL EXPERIENCE WOULD HAVE BEEN HAD THEY BEEN SENT TO ANOTHER SCHOOL.
FAMILIES SHOULD NOT BE SPLIT UP UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!
ONCE AGAIN……THERE IS NO REASON WHY OUR CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND THE SAME SCHOOL AS THEIR SIBLINGS WHO ARE CURRENTLY ENROLLED.
Please sign the petition if you agree.
