HUSTONVILLE - Traffic flow at Hustonville Elementary School is improving, though some parents are still trying to avoid pick-up procedures.
Principal Marilyn Hafley attributes the improvement to earlier release times for kindergartners and preschool students, as well as a letter sent to parents explaining the pick-up procedures. The issue was discussed Thursday at a school council meeting.
"In the past couple days, we've loaded 22 cars between 2:30 and 3 o'clock. It's really a less stressful situation for those kids, they don't have to rush into the cars and rush out," said Hafley.
Students in first through sixth grade can be checked out at any time, but will receive a tardy if they leave before 3:10 p.m., as mandated by the state.
