West Drop Off/Pick-up Expectations and Locations

Please be courteous and patient of these very important safety rules and reminders when dropping off and picking up your child at West.
Our #1 goal is to keep children safe. We do that by using the crosswalk and designated parking areas. Please do not park along the curb or get out of your vehicle when it is drop off/pick up time. If you need to park, you must use the parking lot which is located east of the building.

Do not park along the yellow curb during the morning or afternoon drop off/pick up (approx. 8:00 am-8:45am and 3:15pm-4:00 pm) this is a safety hazard for our students. Please drop off/pick up and continue exiting through the front loop.

  • Drop off times are 8:00am to 8:36am and pick up time is 3:36pm
  • Pick up/Drop off locations are:
    • 1) The front of the school building located on 24th Street
    • 2) The West entrance, which is located in the Christ Memorial parking lot by the large playground.
  • No one (besides staff and students) can enter the playgrounds until school is dismissed. This includes the bus area and both playgrounds. This is a district policy and a safety issue.
  • Please DO NOT pick-up/drop off in the bus driveway located on the South side of the building. It is very dangerous for students and bus drivers
