I'm going to try and fight it. I do have until August. She can stay in her old school, they just won't bus her there anymore after this school year ends. (In Texas, you can send your kiddoe just about anywhere you like for school, they are very open that way).
I just don't think it's fair that they built new schools and force people who didn't want them to use them. Had they built ONE new school, more centrally located out in the Northern area, all the kids from all the new developments could have used it and none would have to change from their home schools.
The children in our neighborhood can't walk to their current elementary school - they have to cross a very busy 4 lane road that's 55 mph, and when they get across there's no sidewalks. Including where they have to climb through an underpass of the highway that goes around the town. I wouldn't let my son walk there, and he's almost 12.
Part of the problem (as I hate to admit it) is that I don't handle change well. Really, not at all. Right down to I eat the same breakfast and lunch every day, and if you tell me the day of the week I can tell you what I had for dinner
So this is huge.
We may well end up driving her every day, which will be a huge hassle (and expense with the cost of gas) but something we'll have to do. Figuring out how we'll do that and get me to work on time may be the real trick.
