Edgewater School, Point Place
I've been talking to a few of the Point Place residents about the school situation. If ever there was a community that needs a middle school in their neighborhood, Point Place is it. We're going to work together to draw attention to the need and try to model a program similar to Beverly School. It is such a waste of fuel and time to sit children on a bus and drive them over 5 miles to a middle school. I can just see the dollar bills spitting out the exhaust pipe of the school busses! Consider also the amount of time the children spend riding the bus... at least 45 minutes from the first student. It would be time well spent in a classroom or the exercise in walking to school. So many neighbors are upset about this and it is a main cause of so many children attending the charter schools from this area. Wake up TPS and School Board.. listen to the community that is footing the bill... they want there children attending school in their neighborhood!!
