Change - End of the Day Procedures

posted Jan 24, 2013, 11:13 AM by andy.crozier@andrew.k12.ia.us

Parents & Students,

We are changing our end of the day procedures to improve safety for students. Our bus area has always been the place which students and parents have waited to pick students up. Unfortunately, this is not the best place for this to take place. With the office being moved downstairs, it makes more sense for students being picked up from school or walking home to leave school through the North office doors. This location allows for parents and younger siblings to wait inside on cold days and has a few benches for people to sit and wait. 

Starting tomorrow, students that are walking home or meeting a parent will need to exit through the North door next to the main office. All students riding the bus will exit through the West doors by the playground. K-2 will exit through the doors to the playground while 3-5 will exit through the doors in their wing of the building. Students walking home or meeting a parent will not be allowed to exit through the West doors and will be redirected to the North doors. 

We will continue to have staff at corners of the building to monitor students crossing the street and to ensure they are staying on sidewalks. We hope this change improves the flow of traffic to and from the bus area and improves safety for all. 

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this new procedure. 

Andy Crozier

Superintendent/Principal
