Carpool drop-off is often a challenge in schools. With so many children arriving at the same time, safety has to be monitored, and whatever system is in place should run smoothly. We’ve got a pretty smooth system, but there is always room for improvement. One of Mr. Stehly’s classes was doing a project on analyzing systems. They chose to observe drop-off in the morning. They watched children arriving to school and collected data. Then they modeled it on the board in their classroom and on paper (see below) and came up with two recommendations.
To start, they suggested painting a line so that parents would know not to drive over a certain area. That way, as children get out of cars, particularly next to the fence, there would be a safer zone. Thank you Brisa, Velislava, Alexandro, and Axel. More to come!
