Another Proposed School Road Closure

Looks like yet another school is proposing closing a road that runs through it- this time a private school.

St. Bernards Catholic School, in Eureka, wants to close C street between Dollison and Henderson durning school hours as students need to cross the street regularly there.

Eureka High School started a similar thing with J Street some years ago. When the elementary school across from Eureka High became part of the high school campus, students had to cross J street all the time, thus the road closure. Anyone know of any other schools that have road closures while school is in session?

I guess I don't have that much of a problem with it, especially since those roads can get congested while school is in session, anyway. The main problem I have with this is it's just one more thing kids aren't learning in school nowadays: To look both ways before crossing the street.

Then again, aren't kids suppose to learn that at home, or is this one more parental duty that the schools took over and screwed up?

IT's parental responsibility, not the school's. But it makes sense to close those roads during school hours if the elementary kids will be going back and forth for recess and the library.

Having gone there, I've seen quite a few "near misses" with stupid drivers not paying attention, even AT the cross walks.
