Anessa went over the Q&A
All named attendees above gave information related to the reasons for the fence both locally and at other schools across the Bay Area, State and nation.
Also, a discussion of a joint use agreement being discussed between MHUSD and San Jose City Parks (Torie O’Reilly) to address the neighborhood concern that an area that has been used for decades is being eliminated from their use. A suggestion was given to place a running/walking loop between Los Paseos Elementary and the School field; this is on the Park property. Torie took notes and will update us in the future.
A comment about possible continued use is to put in electrically controlled gates as shown in the field photo (see pdf) that would be open during non-school hours, including weekends. This is still under consideration as to type of gates and entrance possibilities.
The neighborhood attendees’ comments were received and taken note of by the named attendees above.
