  • I am writing because I am a concerrned parent, It's the safety of the children in your school that has me worried, I live on the corner of Warren and Essex Street and the intersection is very dangerous for the children with no crossing guard. The kids be flying across the street not watching whether cars are coming up or down the streets. A few days ago I was watching out my window because my grandson goes there and I make sure he does not cross the street, a few kids almost was hit by a car because they are not paying attention while crossing, and the cars don't have pity for these children because if they don't have to stop the don't, but you have children that walk out in the street seeing the cars and just cross, It is a very dangerous intersection and there should be a crossing guard there Monday thru Friday for the safety of these children before some one gets seriously hurt. Please parents if you have children attending this school we need to get together and do something about this... Thanks for the cooperation....
