Letter to the editor: Bird Rock student’s point well taken

In response to the feature/editorial written by Bird Rock Elementary student Brooke Kaufman, it would be wise for the school administration and school community parents to take a warning and lesson from an alert and wise fifth-grader.

School safety patrol members are trained to facilitate safe school arrival and departure on the streets surrounding the elementary school. They are advised to report unsafe conditions and circumstances to the patrol teacher adviser, if possible accompanied with a name or license plate number. Nothing more.

I sincerely hope that Bird Rock’s principal will immediately assign herself and other adults (parents are usually more than willing to volunteer for a weekly shift) to the problem areas on a daily basis, to back up and support enforcement of the safety of the student population. It would be helpful if the SDPD officer assigned to the school would increase his involvement at the school.

Brooke’s article was a loud wake-up call. Listen now and we won’t have an incident to break our heart.
