Dear Meadowlark Families,


Due to the number of cars that are sitting stationary on 159th street between the time of 3:30pm - 3:45pm, The City of Andover has mandated how the school is to respond to this issue. The city is requiring that we double up the cars into two lanes. You will see cones located in the oval to signify the two lanes.


At arrival, please use JUST the lane closest to the curb. There is no need to use two lanes.


At dismissal, please line up by branching off into the two lanes at the beginning of the oval. A staff member will guide you in a flight of 6 cars to the specific cones where your child should be waiting. If for some reason your child has not made it to the specific cone, please pull up all the way to the end of the oval (multiple car lengths past cone number one) and we will locate them for you. Additionally, we ask that you pull into the side lot or into the main lot to buckle your child so that we can keep the flight of cars moving.


We appreciate your support and understanding as we expedite the safest and fastest way to get your child to and from school!


Dana Matheny, Meadowlark Principal

CHECK IN AND OUT PROCEDURES

Checking students out

Office staff will conduct all signing in and out of students. Parents may call to check-out students and then the student is sent out to the parent with visual identification. For in-person checking out, once a student is checked out, the parent will go back to their vehicle and the student will be sent out by the office. School Phone Number: 316-218-4630


Checking students in

Staff members will check students in to create a touchless system. Students need to have temperature checked before proceeding to class if they are arriving for the first time that day.

Andover Public Schools Nutrition Service is looking for great people to become a part of their team.

This is a great way for parents or grandparents to make extra money while the kids are in school!


Immediate openings are available. If you are interested in working with a great group of people, let us hear from you. Starting pay is $11.33 an hour. Experienced applicants may earn more.
