We the undersigned respectfully request that you consider our position against the proposal of the closing of Duncan Elementary and rezoning of the remaining schools in the Comanche neighborhoods.

Many of us moved into these neighborhoods because of the proximity of the schools. Closing and rezoning presents problems that concern us as parents of young students. Some of those problems are as follows.

  • If there is an emergency, or my child is sick, how am I supposed to get to the proposed school for 4th and 5th grade, Meadows Elementary, without a car? There is no public transportation.
  • If my child misses the bus, how will they get to school? This in turn means they stay home, and KISD has a higher absence rate and or tardiness for the school year.
  • How long will my child/children be on the bus?
  • How early will I have to wake my child to get on the bus?
  • What about those who take advantage of reduced or free meals and need to be at school for breakfast hours? Will the bus take that into consideration and time accordingly?
  • Will there be a bus for those planned to attend Hobby that live over a mile from the school? Will there be an adult to supervise the children? Aside from the bus driver. Hobby is proposed to be PK-3 and those children will need supervision.
