Support SchoolZone On Gravois Road/HWY 30 For Sappington Elementary
We, as parents of school-aged children and/or those who work and live in the Sappington Elementary School district, support this petition which would allow the Missouri Department of Transportation to designate the portion of Gravois Road/HWY 30 in front of Sappington Elementary School as a school zone.
We believe that there is insufficient signage on Gravois Road/HWY 30 to notify drivers that there is an elementary school in that area. We feel unsafe walking along Gravois Road/HWY 30 in front of the school, where speeds regularly exceed the posted 40 MPH limit. We are concerned with the increasing volume and speed of traffic along Gravois Road/HWY 30 and feel Sappington is losing a battle to ever be a residential and walking-friendly community.
We support this petition to achieve the following results:
*To slow down traffic in front of Sappington Elementary School.
*To raise awareness and promote safer access to school grounds.
*To maintain and enhance Sappington's walkability.
Please sign this petition to show support for our community!
