Parent Drop Off

Dear Parents:

Please be reminded, if you wish to drop off your child in the morning, you may join in line and follow the pattern with the rest of the parents. Cars should not enter the parking lot until 7:24 a.m. The unloading of cars will begin promptly at 7:25 a.m.

If you wish to escort your child into the building beginning at 7:25 a.m., you may park at the side and walk into the building. THERE IS NO STUDENT DROP OFF AT THE SIDE OF THE BUILDING THIS IS FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL OUR STUDENTS.

Please note, we strongly encourage you to place your child on the bus to minimize the chance of late arrival.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Parties/Special Snack Days

Due to the number students with food allergies at WBI, homemade foods are highly discouraged and must be pre-approved by your teacher prior to being brought to school for distribution.  If homemade goods have been pre-approved by your teacher, they are only allowed in the classroom.  Any treat distributed in the lunchroom MUST be store bought.

If you drop off your child in the morning, we have a designated drop-off line from 7:25 am until 7:45 am.  Please remain in the drop-off line until after your child exits the vehicle.   After 7:45 am, you will need to walk your child into the office to sign them in late.  


Do NOT drop them off on the side of the building, and please do NOT pull into a parking spot in the front of the building. During drop-off hours, if you wish to escort your child in, park on the side of the building and walk your child in.  ~Thank you for your cooperation.
