Parents » Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

     Willow Creek has some unique physical features. Our one entry/exit driveway and our population size make the drop off/pick up process challenging.   However, we feel that when we all follow procedure to the best of our ability, we are able to maintain a safe environment for our children.  We would like to remind everyone that safety is our number one priority for drop off/pick up.  We try to be as efficient as possible to respect everyone’s time, but no 5 minutes of time is worth a tragedy; a tragedy that would greatly impact all of us.  With this in mind, we ask for your diligent use of patience on those days that things seem be running a little slow.
 
 Drop off/pick up takes place in the west parking lot at the basketball court area.  
 Outside lane of traffic is for vehicles waiting to progress through the line to reach the drop off/pick up area.
 No vehicles at any time should be left unattended in the outside lane.
 Inside lane should only be used for moving traffic, no vehicle at any time should be left unattended in the inside lane.
 We ask that only Kindergarten parents park their vehicles and physically get their students from the class lines.  We do understand that there are unique situations that may require a parent of a non‐Kindergarten student to park, but this should not be the normal daily procedure.   Revised August 2018 5
 Parked vehicles should always use the inside parking spots, unless none are available.  Please understand parking in the outside spots tends to slow down the process when those individuals are trying to join the traffic flow.   
 Please do not ever allow your student(s) to walk through the parking lot without an adult escort regardless of their age.   
 
We thank everyone ahead of time for following this procedure and contributing to a safe and orderly environment at Willow Creek Elementary.  It is what all of our children deserve!!
