As schools remain closed in an effort to help stop the spread of the new coronavirus, a local elementary school principal is leaving books on her front porch for students to pick up and read.

South Bosque Elementary School Principal Stacey Voigt left the books outside along with a treat starting Tuesday morning inviting students to stop by and get one of each.

"I want the students to continue reading during the break as well as provide another resource for parents," Voigt said.

Voigt's social media post reads "Stop by and pick up a book to read from our porch. P.S. Take a pixy stick, too!"

The principal said that a surprising number of students, at least fifty in the first few hours, have already showed up to her front porch.

"I get to see the students through the window. I love and miss them so much," she said.

"My husband commented that it looks like Halloween at our house."

The principal says she plans to leave the books out indefinitely and hopes to add playing cards for math and games later this week.

POSITIVE AND PROACTIVE: Royden Ogletree is live with South Bosque Elementary Principal Stacey Voigt who is giving out free books at her home to students!
