9/3 New Pick-Up Pattern for Students at Kewaskum School

A new school year is bringing some new changes to Kewaskum. Parents of students at Kewaskum Elementary school will need a little patience as they learn a new afternoon pickup policy at the school.
According to school Principal Jody Hepp, the change was made primarily due to safety concerns as last year there was a couple of close calls of kids almost being hit by a car.  Under the old program,
the parents of 4K through second-graders parked their cars, and got out to get their children. “Now the parents will not have to get out of their vehicle because they’ll pull up alongside the school, they’ll
have their last name on a name plate and staff members will walk the children to their cars. Kewaskum police will be on hand the first week to help. Kewaskum Police Chief Tom Bishop approves of the new change because now everyone will be picked up on the sidewalk side, and nobody one has to cross streets. There will be six school staffers helping with pickup on Third Street, while in the rear parking lot there
will be at least three more staffers. School administration expects the new process to work well. Kewaskum Elementary has about 150
students. Pickup is weekday afternoons 3:45 p.m.
