Save Wolf's Crossing Elementary
TO OSWEGO SCHOOL DISTRICT 308 BOARD OF EDUCATION - Our Community is Speaking:
A PETITION TO SAVE WOLF'S CROSSING ELEMENTARY
We, the undersigned, call on the District 308 Board of Education to vote to NOT send Wolf's Crossing Elementary to Murphy Junior High in Plainfield and to maintain our relationship with our neighborhood feeder school and sister campus - Bednarcik Junior High.
By considering splitting up a campus location of Wolf's Crossing and Bednarcik sets a dangerous precedent throughout District 308 that will have negative long-term affects on our children, our community and our housing values and will put other campus locations in jeopardy in the future for the ever-changing landscape of our school district.
Wolf's Crossing Elementary currently has neighborhoods that are divided into two (2) Elementary Schools (Wolf's Crossing and The Wheatlands) and by voting to send us to Murphy you will be splitting our neighborhoods into two (2) Junior High Schools as well - going completely against the core guiding and feeder principles that were established by the Oswego School District 308 and the Board of Education. There are better solutions that would not divide neighborhoods in areas that are more self-contained that will not split those communities into multiple schools, but maintain the feeder principles of our district.
As a community, the families of Wolf's Crossing will organize to form committees to help the Board of Education find solutions to alleviate some of the potential problems we are facing in our school district in the future. Ripping our community from the neighborhood schools that we have raised as our own is a short-sighted solution that deserves long-term consideration that we are prepared to offer through the transition period of our school district.
We urge the District 308 Board of Education to take the next bold step forward in the fight to maintain our communities and the natural relationships we have with our neighboring schools.
Now is the time to make smart decisions.
Families won't forget.
