Change to Walker Process
As you know, student safety is our top priority at Bertram Elementary. We continuously evaluate our school systems to provide the safest environment for students and staff. We have recently identified that increased student enrollment has caused additional afternoon traffic and our walker system needs to be adjusted. Beginning on Monday, November 14th, 2022, students will no longer be allowed to meet cars at the Methodist Church. All students meeting cars will need to do so in the car line at the front of the school. Our new parking lot and Car Rider Pro system have significantly improved the wait times in the car rider line. We have all cars through the line by 3:35pm on most days.
In order for students to have a transportation change to walk, parents must complete the Walker Permission Slip acknowledging that the student will not be meeting a car and that there are inherent risks to walking. Families will need to provide the address that the student will be walking to. Please call the office if you have any questions.
