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!
Flu Season is here, lets all practice Healthy Habits!
