Idling Vehicles and Student Health

Many parents/caregivers idle their cars while waiting to pick up children. The evidence shows that vehicle emissions harm children. There is a high concentration of children walking with a ring of idling cars surrounding them up to 5 days a week. Unless the weather is extreme (90+ or below 32), we'd encourage all drivers to turn off vehicles. To read more information about vehicle emissions, please click here.
