Starting on Wednesday, August 26th, we will begin a new dismissal process for our car riding students. Due to the number of students now attending West Woods Elementary, the District will be sending our buses approximately 5-7 minutes after the 2:55 pm regular dismissal. As a result of this change, we will utilize the car pool loop and the bus loop for our car riding students. To expedite the dismissal process, the following procedure will be implemented:
- At our normal dismissal time, 2:55 pm, all of our car rider students and walkers will be dismissed.
- Students in Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, and any older siblings of students in these grade levels will utilize the car pool loop to be picked up.
- Students in 3rd Grade, 4th Grade, 5th Grade, and 6th Grade will utilize the bus loop to be picked up.
- Please see this diagram for a visual representation.
By using both the car pool and bus loops, we hope to have all our car riding students dismissed in a safer, more efficient manner. We are also hoping to alleviate some of the car congestion prior to our school and day care buses arriving. We believe this will actually make our dismissal process faster, and any difference in student drop off time from buses should be minimal. If you have any questions regarding this new procedure please contact the school. As always, new procedure will take a few days to run smoothly. Please be patient and follow all directions from school staff members to help in this process.
