Louisville – Students in the Jefferson County Public School system will be heading back to class next week and Councilwoman Attica Scott (D-1) wants to make sure the areas where school buses pick up and drop off children are also ready for the new school year.
“This is an opportunity for the community to show their support for helping get children started on the right foot in this new school year,” says Scott. “We invite volunteers to come out and help clean up the bus stops in three areas this Saturday, August 17th.”
Teachers, staff and parents of school children will head to the Chickasaw, Park DuValle and Parkland neighborhoods to clean up bus stops. Volunteers will meet at Maupin Elementary School and then fan out throughout the neighborhoods.
The cleanup will get underway from 10:00am to 12:00pm.
“We would love to meet and talk to parents, people who are parenting and students before school starts and make sure that your child is ready for the first day of school on August 20th,” says Scott.
