NEW DROP OFF/PICK UP PROCEDURE for 4K!

Attention 4K AM/PM session parents: For the safety of our youngest students please park when dropping off or picking up your child from school. The driveway in front of the building is for 4K student midday bus transportation. The bus must be able to pick students up from in front of the building and cannot be blocked.

Beginning of day Drop Off

& End of day Pick-Up

Pick-up/Drop-off Procedure – At Woodfield Elementary School, we place a great deal of emphasis on student safety. If your child is driven to and from school, please make sure to drop him/her off on the school side of the driveway. All too often, parents “double park” and students are dropped off or picked up from the outside lane of traffic and they need to cross between many cars. This is not a safe practice and it sets a bad example for our students. Students that are dropped off in the morning should walk to the back of the building. Please note: Supervision is not provided on the playground until 8:15 A.M. Students arriving for breakfast should enter through “Door G” on the playground.

When entering the pick up/drop off line please treat the driveway as a one lane road.

You may not leave the line to pass the cars in front of you. Once your child(ren) exit the vehicle please remain behind the car in front of you. DO NOT exit the line to pass vehicles in front of you.  This will ensure that all student can be dropped off or pick-up in a safe and orderly fashion.

If you park in the lot, please escort your children to and from your car. Staff members will not allow children to walk to and from cars in the parking lot without adult supervision. If you need to leave your vehicle to come into school for any reason, please park in one of the marked spaces in the lot and not in the driveway. Front circle parking is only for immediate drop-offs or pick-ups outside our traditions drop-off and pick up times, during the school day. Parents are also reminded that cars are not permitted to drive around the back of the building.

Please Remember These Drop-Off and Pick-Up Rules:

  • Children must enter and exit vehicles on the passenger side of the vehicle only (keeping them safely out of the lane of moving traffic).

  • Cars may pull up only to the curb and may not “double park” in order to pick up a child for any reason. Children may not walk between parked cars in order to board their parent’s “double parked” vehicle for any reason.

  • Drivers should not leave their vehicle and must remain seated in the driver’s seat in order to pull ahead when necessary (except to help a small child get into the car).

  • Cars must pull ahead to fill in the gaps that occur when a vehicle exits.

  • The curb is not a parking area and cars that are left parked there create a backup for everyone.

  • Parents parking in the parking lot for pickup are required to walk up the sidewalk to escort their child back to the car.

  • Cars should not block the road where busses need to exit.

  • No vehicles are allowed to drive behind the school between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM as these are the main times children are arriving to and leaving school.

Please use care on the roads around the school as some children walk home in areas without sidewalks.
