OVERTURN UXBRIDGE BUSSING CONTRACT FOR 2009-2010 SCHOOL YEAR sign now

From: Residents of Uxbridge, MA

This is a petition to overturn the Uxbridge School Committees decision on bussing and request they hereby void the current contract with the Vendetti bus company for the upcoming 2009-2010 school year. This petition urges the School Committee to think of the larger population and to take into consideration older children can take care of themselves while younger children still need their parents help and guidance.

By signing this petition, I am asking the school committee to no longer offer bus transportation to and from school for Uxbridge high school students. By eliminating the high school run (which few high school students use, per the school committee) it allows children in grades K through 4 to attend school at the same time and be bussed at the same time. Also, middle school parents who were being forced to drive their students in fear of the exposure to much older children on an overcrowded, unsupervised bus can feel safe using the bus transportation again thereby lessening the traffic flow and congestion at the Whitin Middle school.


By signing this petition I acknowledge if the current contract goes through there will be greater ramifications such as loss of after school programs, loss of transportation to CCD, loss of wages, greater traffic congestion around town, higher stress levels for students, bus drivers, parents and residents of Uxbridge, and most importantly our town and our children will be divided.

    Young children should not be subjected to the language, discussions, and behavior of high school students. This action is inappropriate for the well being of our children. Please reconsider what this will mean for the young children of our town.

    Please think about the children and families this situation effects. It is important to keep our children safe. We preach about the importance of spending time as a family and then you make it more difficult to accomplish that.
