Head Start of Lane County (HSOLC) has identified unnecessary vehicle idling as a contributor to air pollution and increased health risk. One of the areas where unnecessary idling occurs the most is at schools where buses and cars line up to drop off and pick up children. HSOLC will identify no idle zones (idling no longer than 30 seconds) at each of its locations that have self-transport.
‘No Idle Zone’ signs will be posted in the drop off/pick up areas at each site that has self-transport.
Information about idling and the No Idle Zone program will be distrusted to families.
Information about idling and the No Idle Zone program will be distributed to all Head Start employees who operate program vehicles, including but not limited to bus drivers, maintenance personnel and foodservice delivery staff.
