Safety of all school children should be the primary concern of parents when dropping off and picking up their kids from school.

J.R. Walkof School Principal Larry Schroeder says they have some concerns because of a few close calls that have happened at the start and end of the day.

He says parents just need to be patient, especially at the end of the day and expecting we will not be able to make it through the line as quickly as we'd like on some days.


Schroeder says one of the ways the school is trying to make things safer is reminding parents to use the whole parent drop-off loop and not just half of it.

He adds the parking lot is not to be used as a drop-off area.

Schroeder says a newsletter will be going home with students and also handed out by staff at the drop-off loop.
