Q. Who is responsible for enforcing drop-off and pick-up procedures at the public schools? Parents often drop-off and/or park illegally yet the police officers do nothing and it appears the school does nothing either. It is a dangerous situation for the kids on bikes or walking to school.
A. In New Hanover County, schools outline rules for drop-off and pick-up procedures in their parent/student handbooks. You can view an example of those rules here, from Murrayville Elementary School’s handbook (page 7).
Staff members often stand outside in the mornings and afternoons to help drop-off and pick-up run smoothly. School principals are responsible for enforcing all procedures, said Bill Hance, the district’s assistant superintendent for operations
