OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Desk barriers are catching the eyes of school district decision makers in Kansas and Missouri.
As schools prepare for students in the fall, one local company is making sure children can learn in the safest environment possible.
InStore Design Displays, located in the Northland, designed and manufactured a desk barrier prototype in less than a week. The clear square box with only three sides could be new normal in school districts across metro.
“It’s something personal that’s specifically in their space,” InStore Design Displays Senior Account Director Shana Ryan said. “So when a child sits down they don’t feel restricted. They’re not playing with the mask. They can actually focus on their school work and see their teacher.”
