Provide Transportation to Mills Park Middle Grandfathered Students
Mills Park Middle School students in Breckenridge, McCrimmon at the Park and Phillips Place neighborhoods want to continue their schooling at Mills Park Middle. Our students have friends and caring teachers, and parents have committed countless hours volunteering to make Mill Park Middle the school it is today. For the 2016-17 school year, 72 students from Breckenridge and 19 from McCrimmon at the Park were grandfathered in after a redistricting decision by the Board of Education. Of course, our students are committed to finishing out their middle school years at the school where they began them.
The caveat? Families have to provide their own transportation. In our neighborhoods alone, that would amount to over 100 additional cars in an already overcrowded carpool line, causing traffic problems and a potentially unsafe commute for our students and others.
We the families of Breckenridge, McCrimmon at the Park and Phillips Place are calling on Wake County Public Schools to provide transportation for the grandfathered students at Mills Park Middle School for 2016-17.
