continued Robert Hanlon, spokesman for the school district, said the concern isn’t anything new, but since the school doesn’t own the land there is little it could do to rectify the situation.
“We have had parents bring concerns to us in the past about walking along the roadway that leads to the middle school,” said Hanlon. “We welcome anything that would improve our kids’ safety as they get to school every day.”
He also pointed out sidewalks are sporadic throughout the area because villages tend to have ample sidewalks while towns often have fewer.
For instance, on the Scotia end leading to the front of the high school there is a sidewalk, but there isn’t a sidewalk for students coming from the Glenville side of the school. The sidewalk stops at the school and doesn’t continue down Sacandaga Road.
