This is how it looks at the end of a successful day at the parents’ drop off and pick up line. No cars. No kids. 🙂
This is one of two locations for car pick up at Jenks West Elementary, Building B, (Pre K only). There are 13 teachers with each of their classes lined up in two locations each day after school. There is a very strategic system in place. At the end of the school day, the children are lined up against the building by class with their teachers. Parents line up in single file curbside remaining in their cars. Pick up occurs at every other pole. The blue pole, red pole, green pole, and brown pole. All manned by a staff member to assist them into their car. A teacher with a megaphone calls out the teacher’s name, the child’s first name and the color of the pole where they are to wait. Runners in the form of paras and aides assist in escorting the students from their spot with their class to the appropriate pole to wait for their car to pull up.
It runs like clockwork . Except for Tuesday. One mother had a flat tire in the middle of the line.Those things happen. There will always be those forces we can’t control. We make the best of them, then move on to plan B.
The car line at Jenks Wesy Elementary. The big picture is all about educating. After all, it is a school. Establishing rules and procedures, practicing them, and putting them into place. And it runs like clockwork when everyone consistently follows them.
That’s not just the practice at Jenks West Elementary. That’s God plan too. He has a rule book. It’s called the Bible.
We may have outgrown the car line at elementary school, but each of us can still follow rules and procedures. God’s rule book. To educate us on the rules and procedures necessary to live a good life. The one your creator designed for just you. Because one day you will be in that final line, God, your heavenly Father, will be waiting…for parent pick up.
