Principal's Desk

Wayside Family,

We hope everyone had a relaxing and rewarding summer. We are rapidly approaching the first day of school and ready to welcome all our Wildcats back! Please keep in mind your student will receive their paper copy of their class schedule on the first day of school. We will have posters with your student's first reporting class posted in the hallways. For your reference, 7th and 8th graders will go directly to their 1st-period class, and 6th graders will report to the Danny Jordan Gym on the morning of August 16th. Our goal is to have schedules available for viewing in Skyward by 5:00 PM, August 12th. If you are not able to see your student's schedule then please reach out to the campus on August 13th to verify that we have updated shot records (7th graders only) and that your student is registered for the upcoming school year.

We encourage you to add Wayside's phone number, 817-232-0541 into your cell phone and follow us on Facebook for updates.

Looking forward to an awesome 2021-2022 school year. See you on August 16th.


John Fahey

Arrival and Pick up:

  • The Wayside Traffic pattern will be in place daily from 7:45 A.M.- 8:15 A.M. and 2:30 P.M. to 3:45 P.M.
  • Only Buses will use the back of the building to pick up and drop off students. Please do not use the back drive or the athletic loop if your child is a car rider.

  • Car Riders will pick up in the front of the building using the flow map from below.
  • All car riders exit out the front doors, so please pull all the way to the end to pick up your student.
  • Both left and right lanes are for cars stopping for drop off. The middle lane should be used for flowing through.
  • We ask that all cars flow through the traffic pattern and please do not exit out the west side of the front parking lot. This stops the flow of traffic.
