Annual Weber Food Drive!

Each year, the Weber Student Council sponsors a food drive to benefit the Crisis Center food bank. This helps provide food to families throughout the Iowa City area. The past few years we have collected about 3,000 non-perishable food items to donate each year, and we are hoping that this year is no exception.

What to donate: Any non-perishable (canned or boxed) item. The food bank is especially in need of items such as peanut butter, canned meat, canned soups, diapers and baby wipes, and cash donations.

Where to donate: Items may be sent to school with students. Each class will be collecting items in their own classroom. Any class that brings in at least 100 items by December 19 will receive a reward to be determined by the Student Council. We will also have a collection box in the front hallway of the school.

When to donate: Any time between now and Friday, December 19.

Thank you in advance for your help with this project!

Parking Lot Car Pick Up Procedures

As we get in to our "busy" season with car pick up and drop off, please read through the Weber Car Pick Up procedures below:

1. Children must be dropped off curbside: Please do not drop off your children in the parking lot area or in the passing lane of the circle drive so small children do not come across the oncoming traffic.

2. Pull all the way up past the crosswalk: Pull up to the end of the sidewalk when letting children off for school.

3. Wait to drop off your children: Children should be dropped off right after the crosswalk (white stripped lines nearest to the front door). This will create better flow and access in dropping off children.

4. Safety first, give yourself a little more time as we come into winter:

As the weather changes more parents will be dropping off and picking up students making the area more congested. So please try to drop off your students a few minutes earlier than normal.

*Also, Please take extra caution and drive slower through Wild Prairie Drive and Goldenrod Drive when approaching crosswalks.
