Reject The Unfair School Boundary Change To New Heritage Hills
We, the residents of New Heritage Hills, identified as "part of Richardson Ridge south of Richardson Side Road" in the New Kanata North Elementary School Attendance Study published on Thursday, May 7, 2015, petition the school board to rescind the proposed boundary change affecting our community.
All proposals in the study unduly separate our neighbourhood from the surrounding community for redirection to the Roland Michener PS (RMPS) for the English program. Richardson Ridge, Heritage Hills, New Heritage Hills and Kanata Estates form a close-knit community. Many children in these neighbourhoods play together and attend the same schools. The proposed boundary splits them up without concern for geographical and communal factors. Of all the primary schools in the study, RMPS is the farthest from our neighbourhood. Of all the communities that make up the student demographics of RMPS, none are adjacent to nor closely associate with ours. It is absurd to segregate our children from the rest of their community.
We believe the existing school boundary for our neighbourhood should remain unchanged. Please keep our community intact and children together.
