Principal Phil Anderson has perfected a system for shuffling nearly 460 students through the halls of Brooklyn Primary School guided by their teachers as they transition from recesses to lunch breaks and out the door to home each day.

The shuffling act is needed because of the large student load placed on the school building constructed in the mid-1950s.

A 24-member committee including school district staff and community members has spent the past year learning more about all Baker School District buildings and the challenges the aging structures present. And they’ve considered improvements needed throughout the system.

Kim Mosier and Pat Heriza, two community representatives of the group known as the Long Range Facility Planning Committee, will present the committee’s findings to the Baker School Board Thursday night.
