Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

Remember: Areas marked in red are NOT to be used as drop off or pick up zones as they aren't safe areas for students before and after school. Drop off and pick up should only occur in the blue zones. The green zone is for parents who park and walk their kids to the building. Areas marked in yellow are crosswalks.

Safety Minute

At Westside, we work really hard every day to keep all our students safe. We continually make changes when needs arise. Our students do an amazing job following these safety protocols. Please remind your student to stay on the sidewalk if they walk home. We have had some neighbors concerned about student safety after school. During morning announcements, I often remind students of our safety measures. Thank you for reminding them at home as well.
