I am also having issues with the cross guards or shall I say lack there of. Our home is just over 1 mile away from the school and transportation says its considered walking distance. I am not happy about this, but understand that here on this island there are limited amount of buses for all the children and its hard to spare a bus for a mile walk. The problem I am having is that Bryson has two major intersections to cross on his walk, and at each intersection he has to cross it twice. The reason for this is because the sidewalk doesn't continue on the other side and then at the next intersection he has to cross twice again because the school is back on the other side.
One of the intersections is a street light. This street light doesn't even have a button to push that would allow him to see when he should cross the street. The other intersection is a stop sign that's a quarter of a mile from the school and it still doesn't have cross guards. I addressed this concern with the school at first and they said to call the superintendents office and when I called them they said they would discus it with the school. I feel like I am getting the run around.
If I had a choice I would not make Bryson walk home, and I am still trying to figure out how not to. The problem I am having is that Carter gets out of Pre-K at 3pm with a very strict late policy. They will charge by the minute. Carter's Pre-K is also at another base. Bryson's school gets out at 3:05pm. See the problem I am having. If they would just bus him I would be home by the time he was, the same thing if he walks I will be home before he gets there. I just want him to be safe if he has to walk.
I will let you know what I find out.
