Reeves Elementary Walkers
Hello neighbors! As some of you may know, Reeves Elementary students are no longer allowed to walk home from school if they live Pine Forest. This has been a long battle between parents, administration, safety directors, etc which has resulted in students being required to ride the bus (which technically goes against their own policy of needing to live a certain distance from the school), or be picked up via car rider (which is already a congested mess and causes backups in traffic on Hummingbird). The district does pay for other neighborhoods to have walker paths, crossing guards, etc, but has so far been unwilling to accommodate Pine Forests. And no, this is not an HOA issue -I've checked.
Therefore, I've decided to start a petition and present to the school board on Nov. 18th. Anyone is welcome to join me at the meeting, but I'm hoping to collect signatures from as many people impacted by this policy as I can.
If you don't have students at Reeves, you can still sign our petition! Your tax dollars could end up going toward adding another school bus and driver to accommodate all the additional students riding the bus in our neighborhood.
If your student currently rides the bus or does car rider and you're perfectly happy with that arrangement, great! Please still consider signing the petition to support those of us who would like to have the option to walk from a school that is so close to our homes.
Thank you for taking the time to read and support!
