WES Arrival and Dismissal Procedures


The safety of our students is important to us and we want to thank our Weatherstone Community for following the procedures listed in the link above for Walkers, Carpool, and Bus Riders.


  • Please note that as a large elementary school, during arrival and dismissal times, we are unable to accommodate families that park their vehicles and walk up to the front doors.

  • On staggered entry days and on Tuesday, September 6th (for the Kindergarten Social), Kindergarten families may walk their child to class. 

  • Arrival and Dismissal will take a few extra minutes again this week, so please plan accordingly.
