Private-school parents take a stand
(Page 3 of 3)
Andrew Hackmack/Herald
Private-School parents signed petitions at Holy Name of Mary School on Feb. 27 in opposition to the high school’s transportation plan.

Heidenreich told the Herald that the proposed cuts are in many areas. He also said that the changes to transportation would not be a cut, just a change in service. “There are reductions across the board,” he said. “This is not a reduction. This is just a change to the status quo. Everyone’s getting what they’re entitled to.”

Steve Miller, whose daughter attends Sacred Heart, said that parents should bring their children — in their uniforms — to the next board meeting to put a face — many faces — on the issue. “It’s a safety issue,” he said. “Who knows who is getting on that bus with your daughter, your son?”

The school board’s next public meeting is scheduled for March 12, at 8 p.m., in the Memorial Junior High School cafeteria.

I confirmed with the district that not only does this potentially affect those children attending the High Schools listed above, but also 7th and 8th grade students attending area parochial schools. To ask a 12-year old to ride a public bus is irresponsible and potentially dangerous.

We've been paying our school taxes for over 15 years now and we have a say on where our money goes... We want to keep school buses fully operational. Thank you!
