MIS/HPMS Principal Laurie Norton with Peace, Love, & Safety coordinator Fiona Richards.
I had the good fortune of arriving at the MIS queue lane after most parents had dropped their kids off. Principal Laurie Norton said changes to the queue lane on the Granada Avenue side of the school should help move traffic along and discourage parents from dropping kids off outside of the designated lane.
“It becomes a problem when parents stop in the queue lane,” Norton said, adding that having kids ready to exit the vehicle upon pulling into the queue lane will help expedite traffic. “We want everyone to continue to follow the plan,” she said.
Norton was joined by Fiona Richards, a parent and head of Peace, Love, & Safety, who was one of the many volunteers in bright yellow shirts designed by Bradfield Elementary student Jake Moock, 8.
“We have a lot of support from the administration, and the parents support [the queue lane rules],” Richards said. “Parents will be out enforcing the queue lane rules every day,” she said. “We’ll probably do this about once a month this year, later on,” to make sure people are using the queue lane appropriately, Richards added.
