Crossing 6th street seemed too busy for littles. Some of the brick sidewalks hadn’t been cleared off and were icy, bet they were even worse a couple days ago, some parts were muddy. Lots of turns for a little kid to keep track of. Takes a long time to walk.
I would never let my elementary aged child walk that far. They will need to change their mileage requirements for busing if any of these proposed closings take place.
