Idling of Vehicles on School Grounds

The Board seeks to limit vehicle emissions that might be brought into school corporation buildings to reduce exposure to these emissions and to improve indoor air quality for students, staff, and visitors. The school has posted signs in areas where idling is prohibited, and drivers are asked not to idle engines next to the schools and in areas where students are loading and unloading. Drivers of vehicles are to turn off their engines if the vehicle is to be stopped for more than five (5) minutes.

School buses have exceptions to this rule in colder temperatures and when running safety or special needs equipment.
