Davis mom.... Really? I live in the neighborhood and have seen the hill. It is not that bad. If your child has a breathing problem they know how to handle it by this point in their life. There are moderators there to handle any problems and that is what they are getting paid for! Why on earth would you want to make things easier and easier for these kids. They need to get out and move. It is not the kids that complain it is the parents! Kids are able to run up and down these without a problem. They need to get out and move! When I was in school we had an asphalt parking lot to play in! No grass, no trees. It was hot and when you fell you got hurt! It did not stop us from playing. Neither will these steps for our kids. As far as the moderators.......all of the one's that were at Stackpole were in good shape and would not have a problem with these stairs. It might even do them some good. The library.... You can add shelves if you need to. I'm sure that they have that covered! Maybe their reasoning was to have light in the library? They have heir reasoning. Stop the bitching, really!!!!!!

So much negativity. I am really sick of it. Some of you people should just stop it. It is what it is. A new state of the art school. All your negativity is no good for anybody. It's easy to be negative when things are not going the way you want them. Change is something everybody has to go through all throughout our lives. You should dwell on the good things that a new school brings. Children now a days can adjust to anything that comes there way but you who constantly see the negative and not the possitive does not make any adjustments for your children easy. Dwelling on the negativity only hurts your children. Your children follow your lead and become very negative themselves. Lets all start being more positive. All the bitching does no good for anybody. You have a new school with so many positive things about it, enjoy it.

Since so many people were commenting on the hill behind the school, I decided to feature it in today's "Photo(s) of the Day." You can take a better look at the hill and the stairs/ramp here: http://uppersouthampton.patch.com/articles/photo-s-of-the-day-august-24

I think that it's great that the kids will now be going to a brand new state of the art school. But I still think that they made a mistake when they chose to cut corners and created this huge hill. The dirt should have been taken away. That's a legitimate complaint. They took land that was almost level and turned it into a mountain. I don't know how much ground there is before you get to the hill. Will they be able to hold the Annual Davis Picnic on the level land behind the building? Or the Halloween parade? Or will Grandparents be forced to climb up that hill if they want to participate?

Have you seen all the water and poor drainage in the back of the building? It's a disgrace. Mosquitos flying and hanging around stagmant water that smells right next to the black top where all the kids must play. Balls go in the water kids and monitors try to get them. God forbid anyone has a cut or gets MERSA. Disgrace. The township and School board should be ashamed of themselves. These parents need to see out back what their children have to put up with.
