Parents will be charged a fee of $5.00 for every 15 minutes past the designated pickup time (late fee) and $5.00 for every 15 minutes before the designated arrival time (early drop off).
Parents must remain in the carpool line until a staff member helps your child out of your car and escorts him/her into the school. We specifically ask that parents remain in their car until the staff member is able to take your child out of the car.
Parents who drop their child off after carpool is over must park in the parking lot and walk with their child into the school. There is no parking allowed in the carpool lane. Children arriving late must be signed in by their parent at the front desk and a staff member will escort the child to their class. Older and more mature children may walk to class on their own.
Only students who are registered for the Full Day Program (7:00 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.) are allowed into the school early (7:00 a.m. – 8:45 a.m.). Before school care (Home Environment) can only accept students who are registered for early arrival. The teachers are not available to receive children in their classrooms until the designated arrival times mentioned above. WMS staff would appreciate parents’ cooperation in this matter. If the need arises and you need to extend your child’s day at school, parents must first contact the school office. Arrangements will be made based on the availability of space in Home Environment.
Each carpool student will be issued a carpool sign with their name upon enrollment. Please display the sign in your front car window all year when picking up your child during carpool. Children will be dismissed beginning under the second carport in front of Building A. If you are first to arrive for carpool dismissal, please pull all the way up to the far edge of the second carport.
