In an effort to coordinate the dropping off of students at Chase County Schools in the morning, crossing guard Bonnie Weiss has begun directing traffic in the a.m.
The Health and Safety Committee decided to add the morning crossing guard “due to the number of parents that drop their kids off in the street, and the people who go too fast in the mornings,” according to Nurse Angie Paisley, a member of the committee.
Parents should not stop their vehicles in the middle of the street and drop children off, Paisley noted. The students should be let out either in the circle drive, along the south side of the playground, or parents should pull into a teachers’ parking lot stall and let their children use the cross walk.
Paisley said, “Bonnie’s made a big difference out there” already in the past two weeks. Weiss has been the afternoon crossing guard for about a year.
