Worth Primary brings the students to parents

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - Worth County Primary is implementing a new pick up policy they say will be faster and safer for parents picking up their kids.

The school used to have two lines where parents could drive up or walk up and pick up their children. Now school officials are asking parents to stay in their vehicles.

Their children will be brought to them and put in the vehicle by a school official. They say this will help reduce pick up time and is done the same way in other districts in Georgia.

“We feel like it will be safer, each child will be put in a car by an adult, most of them certified teachers will be on duty so we are really pleased with that," said Principal Cora Brettel.

The primary school has just over 1,000 children. The principal says they sent home notices telling parents about the change.
