Letter about unsafe R-P facilities...


Mon, Oct 20th, 2014
Posted in Rushford Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

As many of you know, we had 2 sons in wheelchairs that attended Rushford-Peterson Schools. They loved being students at R-P. After the last vote on a new school, our son Michael told us of how very unsafe he felt at the high school, especially on the third floor. He told us he would never gotten out of the school safely had there been a fire. The school had a plan to get Michael out of the building, but the school would burn so quickly and with so many people trying to get out, he felt he would not get out safely.

Michael also expressed to us that anyone who thinks we don’t need a new school, needs to come and be in a wheelchair for a week, not when the school is empty but when it is full of students. He wanted people to experience how difficult it is to navigate a wheelchair in the current building when you are unable to walk one step by yourself.

No one knows when they may have a child, grandchild or friend who needs to use a wheelchair.

The State of Minnesota has given us a gift, now is the time to proceed with building a new school. The old school has served its purpose for many many years and needs to be replaced to meet the needs of all students of the Rushford-Peterson school district.
