PLEASE USE DESIGNATED CROSSWALKS ESPECIALLY WHEN CROSSING TO THE PARKING LOT.
                                        
 PLEASE FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES FOR STUDENT SAFETY AND SMOOTH TRAFFIC FLOW:
 

Dear Parents & Caregivers,                                                     

 

Where may I “drive through” to drop-off or pick-up my child?

o Cars will ENTER through the center gate. Students will unload/load from cars at the prior

Westhill BUS LOAD ZONE.

Cars will pull as far forward as possible (to the south crosswalk) to allow the greatest number of cars to get to the curb.

o Cars will EXIT through the 4-way stop or center gate. PLEASE YIELD TO BUSES and

CROSSWALKS.

o On days when parent traffic may be increased due to rain, parties or sports events, please

plan for extra time in the drop-off/pick-up lane

 

Where may I park?

o Parking is available at Westhill and Sorenson (front/bus lane row at Sorenson is reserved

for their staff only). ONLY buses may drive through the Sorenson bus lane.

o You may enter the parking lot via the center gate or Sorenson gate. PLEASE YIELD TO

BUSES and CROSSWALKS.

o Cars will EXIT through the 4-way stop or center gate.

Use the crosswalk to get to and from the parking lot.

 

Where may I stand to meet my child?

o The parent waiting area is under cover area.. Please allow space for classes to pass by next to the wall.

 

My child rides the bus-where will they be picked-up/dropped-off at Westhill?

• Big buses will use the circle space around the flagpole (enter & exit at 4-way stop).

Only buses may enter the 4-way stop, ANYONE may exit at the 4-way stop.

Students waiting for the bus will wait on the south side of the building near the low

concrete wall and gym.

• Small buses and daycare vans will drop-off & pick-up at Sorenson. They will enter

through the north gate and exit through the center gate.

 

Car routes Bus routes

This is long-term work. Regardless of how we route cars and buses, the impact on 88th will not

change. We will review this plan annually to adjust if needed. Thank you for keeping our students’ safety a top priority.

 

Sincerely,

Dana Whitehurst. Principal

Westhill Elementary
