Updated West School Parking and Pick-up Procedures

Dear Parents,

We are sending this important message in partnership with our West School PTC Executive Board to highlight some changes** in the West School pick-up procedures. These changes are critical in order to ensure safety on our school grounds. Please read the procedures below and share them with anyone who may be picking up your child, such as caregivers, grandparents, etc. 

Pick-up Procedures:

  • When approaching West School on Ponus Ridge from the southbound lane, please do not turn left into the parking lot if a line has already formed on Ponus Ridge. We ask that you drive to the end of the pick-up line that is formed in the northbound lane.


  • When entering the West School parking lot, please do not enter the exit lane in order to park.  Please drive on the entrance lane. This is a safety issue. Please park in assigned spaces (Do not block fire lanes)


  • Please do not pass the pick-up line after 3:20 p.m. If you decide to park after 3:20 p.m. to pick up at the gym door, please park in an open space BELOW the pick-up line. The gym door will open at 3:35 p.m.


  • **Office pickups will end at 3:20 p.m. All parent pickups after that time will be directed to the parent pickup line. In the event of an emergency, please call the office and we will hold your child until all buses have left the premises and cars have proceeded through the pickup line. You will be able to pick up your child in the office at that time.


  • While waiting in the pick-up line, please be aware of the entrance for the buses and keep it clear.

Thank you!
