Paine Intermediate SRO stresses car line safety
By Gary Lloyd
TRUSSVILLE — Paine Intermediate School Resource Officer Chuck Bradford is stressing safety at the school’s campus.
Bradford said in last week’s Paine Intermediate School e-newsletter that many parents arrive on campus between 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to get in the car line to pick up their children.
“We have allowed this up to this date, but we are receiving many complaints about parents not paying attention to students and teachers in the crosswalk between the school and playgrounds,” Bradford said in the e-newsletter. “It is imperative that if you are arriving early to sit in the carline, you must drive very slowly and cautiously to get to your parking slot.”
Bradford said parents shouldn’t block any crosswalks or park within 10 to 15 feet from the front or back of the crosswalk.
Bradford said that if conditions warrant a change, procedures will be required to be put in place to prevent injuries on campus.
“We will continue to monitor the situation and hopefully parents will understand the process and will see that all procedures are for the protection of our students and staff,” Bradford wrote. “We would appreciate everyone being patient and cooperative in the carline, especially the merging process, and working with us to keep this the safest campus with the best parental support in the state.”
