The Redwood City School District is urging parents to learn how to safely drop off children at school so morning drop-offs and afternoon pick-ups get off to a smooth start later this month.
Confusion can lead to situations that are dangerous for kids, according to district leaders.
Their tips include learning your school’s drop-off and pickup procedures, using only designated locations, not parking across the street, not using the school’s bus zone, allowing extra time or just letting kids walk to school.
