School Messenger 09/20/22  (Morning Drop Off Time & Afternoon Pick Up Time) ...

 

Hello WMS Parents & Staffulty,
 
The purpose of this communication is to ask for your help with morning arrival and afternoon pickups.  I need to be sure that we do not have vehcles waiting on old 31 E blocking the flow of traffic.
 
Here's how you can help with the morning.  If you are the lead when dropping off your child, please pull all the way up to the 2nd speed bump.  Once at the 2nd speed bump, please let your child out.  At this point, all vehicles between the two speed bumps need to unload as quickly as possible.  This way traffic can keep moving.
 
Here's how you can help in the afternoon.  If you are the lead vehicle when picking up your child, please pull all the way up to the 2nd speed bump.  Once there, wait for your child.  Please remind your child that loading may occur anywhere between the two speed bumps and that they need to come to you in this area.  This way traffic can keep moving.
 
Thank you in advance for helping make WMS a safe school.
 
Thank You!
Danny Kay Robinson, Principal
