Safety and Security

The mission of Weatherford ISD is to teach, challenge and inspire each student in a safe nurturing environment to succeed in the global community.

To help create a safe environment for your children, the following drop off procedures are in place:

-School Zone speed limit is 20mph, please drive safely as you are picking up and dropping off.

-Students may be dropped off beginning at 7:00am at the South entrance (behind JCPenny).

-Students may be dropped off beginning at 7:30am at the East entrance (Texas Drive side).

-The first bell rings at 7:40am and students need to be in their seats ready for instruction at 7:50am. Students arriving after 7:50am will be marked tardy.

-All visitors must check in through the main office and be prepared to show their ID.

-For the safety of our students, there will be no early pick-up between 3:00-3:20pm.

Your Child's Attendance Matters!

Our campus attendance goal is 98% each and every day! If your child is here they are learning and we want them here! If your child is out sick, please call the front office so we can document. If they make a visit to a doctor, please make sure you bring the doctor's note. Thank you for your support!

Flu Season is here, lets all practice Healthy Habits!

Listed below are healthy habits to practice at your home and with your children:

1. Wash your hands.

2. Cover your coughs and sneezes.

3. Do not share food or drinks.

We will be reminding students of these healthy habits at school as well!
