SSCA Play Space - NOT Parking Lot
Bishop DiMarzio will be joining Saint Saviour for mass this Sunday, March 20th at 11 AM. Please show your support by signing this petition which will be given to him.
The purpose of this petition is to express our dismay at Fr. Frank's refusal to allow the children of SSCA to play in the "parking lot" adjacent to the school. The younger grades only have use of a small courtyard which was provided in exchange for the use of the parking lot years ago. The older students are currently playing on a sidewalk near a busy street and avenue where ambulances, pedestrians and moving vehicles pose a danger. Alternately, (time, weather and chaperones permitting) the use of Prospect Park is an alternative – otherwise the children stay indoors and use the gym.
Shouldn't our tuition afford our children the option of a safe outdoor play space whether they are in K or 8? Shouldn't our children be prioritized over the luxury (and rare convenience) of parking? Isn't there a way to allow parking and a play space until another viable option comes to fruition?
We respectfully request that the Board, Principal, Pastor and Bishop work diligently to reconsider this position and provide an acceptable solution.
Our faith teaches us to compromise and sacrifice - our children are worth it.
