Weigelstown Elementary Announcements

STUDENT DROP-OFF PROCEDURES – Please pay close attention to the drop-off areas in the parking lot.  We have a designated area for cars to drop-off students.  Cars enter and exit from Fox Run Road.  Students may only be dropped off when staff members are on duty.  Cars must stay out of the “buses only” area directly in front of the building during AM and PM bus runs.  Student drop off times are 8:30-8:45 AM.  If students arrive after 8:45, a parent must sign them in at the office.

PICKING UP CHILDREN AT SCHOOL – To guarantee the safety of each child, it becomes necessary to establish a strict procedure for picking up students during and after school hours.  During school hours all parents are required to report to the office where their child will be paged for them.  Please report to the office and wait for your child.  Dismissal time is 3:25.  Please stay in your car and follow the pick-up procedure (attached).  Cars will enter and exit from Fox Run Road.  Please remember that car rider notes must be renewed at the beginning of every school year. 

Thank you for your cooperation.
