WYNNE, AR (KAIT) -

Wynne Junior High School has more car riders than ever before, so the principal wants parents to be extra cautious. 

Principal David Stepp said they have organized drop-off and pick-up lines for parents and students waiting after school.

Stepp said the district is not growing, but rather more children are riding to school in cars than relying on the buses. 

The school organized two lines for parents to drop off and pick up their children.

Stepp asks everyone to stay off their phones while in the lines and to pay close attention to students walking across the parking lot, as there is now more foot traffic than before.

“Just pay attention,” Stepp said. “For the lines, they move quickly, so just pay attention because we sure do not want any child to get hit accidentally in our car lines.”

There are also separate boys and girls lines in order to keep the flow of traffic steady after school.

Stepp asks students to stay in those lines and, just like parents, he asks students also to be cautious of oncoming traffic.

“We are just stressing the safety of our children,” Stepp said.
