After four weeks of our hybrid in-person/remote schedule, parents and
students have made it clear that the two-hour pick-up window through the
main office once a week for any materials (textbooks, art supplies, library
books, etc.) was not working. This week we've opened it up to pick-up any
day between 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. The vestibule between security doors at
the main office is set up with tables where departments leave items clearly
labeled with the students' names for pick-up. My cart is there with three
boxes: outgoing books, returning books, and the ILL delivery bin.

Through the main office door camera, the secretaries can determine if it's
a visitor or if they need to go out to hand an item to a student. The
secretaries prefer this method rather than tracking down materials from
teachers when a parent shows up outside that narrow pick-up window.
