It has come to my attention, that after decades of being open to the public for use, the track at the NYS School for the Deaf is now off limits to people wanting to use it for daily exercise. The gated entrance to the track is now locked and if it does happen by chance to be open, walkers and joggers are being forced to leave.
Why this new change in policy? What has changed from decades of goodwill toward the public and vice versa? Does the new superintendent of the school not have any faith in the community? There has never been any issue with public use of the track before. People are there simply to use the track for its intended purpose and now are being turned away. Why?
