For the last 5 years I have had issues with the students when school is out. They continue to walk on my fencing and remove bricks and throw them on the sidewalk or street. I have tried asking them politely to stay off my fencing and yard but all I get is foul mouths and threats. I have sent e-mails & complained to the school and the district every year but nothing has yet to change. I am not the only one that has had problems with the students. The kids have broken landscape lighting, side mirrors off of vehicles, leave trash and trespass. I live 2 houses from cypress & M but never see anyone from the staff around. Something MUST be done. ASAP!!
