Parent Drop-off safety

Parents, we had an accident during student drop-off time this week. Our first priority is the safety of our students and the WCHS Community. Please follow the guidelines for drop-off. Also, please do not drop your student off on Wells Road as this causes a huge safety concern. Please pull as far forward as possible before stopping. Dropping off by the main office slows the line down and pushes traffic onto Wells Road. Also, please turn right out of the drop off line as this helps expedite the line. We understand that this may cause your student to walk a little further to class and it may inconvenience you to turn right, however, the safety of our students must come first. Thank you for your cooperation and patience.

Congratulations Savannah Stevens
