The parents of Normal Heights Elementary are outraged at the opening of the joint use fields. There is more to the story such as students still on campus in the after school program known as Prime Time as well as students in after school reading and math tutoring classes. The safety of our children is being compromised. The campus will be open every day starting at 4pm and close the next morning at 8:30am. On weekends it will be opened at 4:30 pm and remain open until monday morning at 8:30 am. It will also be open on school holidays, vacations and summer break. Every day, all day and all night. Our Prime Time program is already in session at 7:00am and our regular school starts at 9:05am. The children in the Prime Time program will not be able to go out and play as now gates are open starting at 4pm and the community and criminal element is allowed onto the campus.
We have students on campus until 6pm monday through friday. We have offered a compromiseable solution of just opening the upper field that is right next to ward canyon park that is fenced off and thus no community access to our children. We cannot understand why the community needs to have access to our students playground while there is a park right next to the school with 2 play structures, park area, basket ball court and bathrooms. There is 3 parks in the area on Adams Ave, and 2 more in the surrounding areas. Our school should not be open to the public, it will attract unwanted attention from the pedafiles in the area as well as drug users, prostitues and the homeless. We have a beautiful, safe campus where our children feel safe to come to school and learn.
