The members of Woodland School Council wish to call your attention to the following safety reminders:

For K-3 parents please observe the following arrival guidelines:

K-3 children walk independently to classrooms supervised by our staff.  Most children arrive by bus but if on occasion a parent needs to drop off a K-3 child, use only the Parent Drop-Off Circle to pause for your child to exit from the right side of the car.  This circle is not for parking at K-3 arrival.

Drop-off is ONLY for children who can independently exit from the car. If you need to get out of the car to help with backpacks or instruments, you must park your car in a parking spot and walk your child to the front of the school.

After your children have been dropped off, you need to SLOWLY move out of the circle. Look to make sure there is no car passing on the left. Please remember that the safety of each child and family far surpasses the need to quickly get to your next destination.

Please note our school day starts at 8:10 a.m.  Your child’s specialists (art, music, physical education, etc.) all begin at 8:20 a.m.  Children are expected to arrive to school on time.
For Weston Window Preschool parents, please observe the following arrival guidelines:

At 8:45 a.m. preschool parents walk their children directly to the classrooms. Preschool parents are allowed to park briefly in our Parent Drop-Off Circle.  Please note we are not able to permit parking in the Bus Loop directly in front of our school. Fire department accessibility is a serious issue for Woodland since we are at the ‘dead end’ of Alphabet Lane.  For that reason we cannot jeopardize our requirement to have an unobstructed fire lane in the ‘Bus Loop’ directly in front of Woodland.

For all Woodland parents, please observe the following procedures:

At dismissal all parents come directly to the lobby (or preschool classroom) to pick up children.  Parents park in the parking lots and not in the Bus Loop/Fire Lane.
For all school participation, parents are to park in our school lot, the town pool lot, or in the ‘overflow’ lot beyond Country.

PLEASE NOTE: In the event of a physical injury/disability, you may use the ‘Bus Loop’ if prearranged with our office.  Please be cognizant that this parking must be brief.  Otherwise, Woodland’s two dedicated handicapped parking spaces are in the Parent Drop-Off Circle.  It is imperative to keep these parking spots free at all times for handicap accessibility.

Woodland School is at the end of Alphabet Lane.
