Petition to retain school bus service in Maple Lawn- please put your address in the comment section
Many children in Maple Lawn will no longer have bus service to FES, LKMS and RHS. Bus service is being eliminated from virtually all of Midtown West and parts of the Garden District and Midtown. The students going to FES will be walking approximately a mile, and therefore they will most likely become car riders due to their age or the late start of school (hard for working parents to walk home at 9:45 and get to work) or during any cold or rainy weather.
Even if your elementary school aged child is not directly impacted by the elimination of buses, you still may lose access to buses in middle and high school due to the shorter distances to the middle and high schools.
In addition to a lengthy drop-off and pick-up process, the car line at Fulton is extremely small and dangerous. Fulton is the largest ES in the county, at 121% capacity; ill equipped to safely manage the significant influx of cars that can be expected with this change. If you are interested in retaining bus service until our overcrowded school situation is resolved, please sign the petition.
I ask if you disagree with this, to please not sign the petition and refrain from any negative comments on this post. Please do not post this on Maple Lawn 2.0. I have posted this on our community HOA page only as it is a Maple Lawn community issue.
