Good Morning Middle Valley!!

For those of you that I don't know me, my name is Suzie Verner and I live on Cloud Court, with my husband, David, and our two boys, Nick and Zack.

I am writing today to ask for your help in adding an Irving Middle School Bus Stop to the front of our neighborhood – at the intersection of Vogels Way and Candytuft Court (the current location of the Hunt Valley Elementary School bus stop).

How You Can Help:
Your support would be greatly appreciated and it will only take a minute! If you could please sign the electronic petition attached, by this Sunday, May 31 our combined voices will be heard and our children will have a better chance for a safer, closer bus stop solution – in our neighborhood!

The Situation:
For children living in the front of our neighborhood, the closest Irving Middle School bus stop is on the corner of Gambrill Road and Ridge Road – outside our neighborhood. And with the new earlier middle school start times, these children will have to walk along the very busy Ridge Road during rush hour traffic – in the dark most of the year!

While this bus stop addition request will help many, it impacts our family greatly. Our son, Zack, is on the Autism Spectrum and will be heading to 7th grade at Irving this fall. Since he does not always pay attention to his surroundings full-time, walking on Gambrill Road to and from the bus stop is not a safe choice.

I am meeting on Monday, June 1 with the Fairfax County Transportation team and would appreciate your support by signing the attached petition. I will keep you updated on the progress and hope that together we can make this positive change for our children.

Suzie Verner
