Drop off & Pick Up Policy
Vehicles entering any one of the five car line drop-off or pick-up must place their vehicle in "park."
Following this simple guidline adds another layer of protection for the WPA Ambassadors, faculty and other scholars. Ambassadors and WPA Faculty members will be advised not to approach the vehicle until the vehicle has been placed in "park."
We will open Drop Off at 7:35 am each morning. Scholars will be considered Tardy after 8:00 am. Please do NOT drop your child off anywhere except the five designated stations on the Drop Off lane where an adult [or student ambassador] opens and closes the car doors. If you arrive after Drop Off has closed for the morning, you must park your car and walk your child into the main building so that you can check them in and receive a tardy slip.
Morning Drop Off is a DOUBLE vehicle lane upon entering the outer circle of our Pick Up lane. Please do not park or idle in the Drop Off lane to walk your child to the building. If you are interested in walking your child to the school please park in the parking lot [there is limited space for parking].
Afternoon Pick Up will begin at 3:00 pm and is staggered. The Front Office will be locked at 2:30 pm pending excused early dismissal. Students that are consistently signed out prior to 2:30 pm without an approved excuse will be referred to the Board of Directors for assistance.
Afternoon Pick Up is DOUBLE Vehicle Lane upon entering the outer circle of our Pick Up lane. Access to all Learning Cottages will be suspended until the completion of Afternoon Pick Up for safety. Please read the instructions carefully.
PLACARD: Please make sure you receive a car placard from the front office – this is critical for effectiveness and efficiency. Although we aim to know your faces and your children, remember that various factors can impact our sight and/or memory (lighting, shadows, tinted windows, weather, stress!) Therefore it is extremely helpful if you can put your placard tilted upwards in the front window nearest to rearview mirror.
Scholars at both campus'
Parents if you have Scholars at both the Middle/High and the Elementary School please pick up your Elementary Scholars first. This is to help alleviate some of the congestion we are experiencing as more scholars are coming to school. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to have siblings meet at one centralized location. This has actually helped slow down the spread of the virus and it makes contact tracing much easier. Please make sure to place your placard in your rear view mirror. This is critical for effectiveness and efficiency. Although we aim to know your faces, tag number and your children, remember that various factors can impact our sight and/or memory (lighting, shadows, tinted windows, weather, stress!).
