OPINION: Don’t be Massholes, Manomet

Plymouth has eight elementary schools. All of which have a crossing guard except, up until recently, for the one near where I live in Manomet. Why Indian Brook Elementary School didn’t always have a crossing guard was an anomaly some parents and I had discussed on more than a couple of occasions over the years. Having no crossing guard seemed especially odd since IBES is on busy State Road but is situated in a residential area where many kids could (indeed should) walk to school. For families with kids who live less than two miles away from school, having to pay an annual bus tax of $200-$300 in order to have a child who lives nearby ride the bus really drives home that there are many good reasons to walk instead.
