Parents, please remember that the best way to communicate with your child's teacher is through our WCPS school email. The classroom Facebook pages and the Dojo are not efficient ways of getting important messages to your child's classroom teacher. These two formats may not be checked by teachers daily, but the email certainly will be, so please use email for your communication needs with your child's classroom teacher.
Our number one concern is the safety of all students. Recently, it has been brought to our attention that there are safety concerns for our students during dismissal. As a precaution and to protect our students we will be implementing the following procedures immediately.
· Walker dismissal is for students who walk home. We ask that you please do not park your car and then pick your child up from walker dismissal.
· If you are picking your child up by car, please use the car rider loop.
· Please do not park on Dumbarton Dr. during dismissal. Parked cars in this area have become a major safety issue.
· Access into and out of the school parking lot will be limited from 2:00-2:20
Morning Drop-Off updates
It has also come to our attention that there are safety concerns in the front parking lot during morning drop-off time. Access to the school parking lot will also be limited from 7:00-7:20. If you would like to come into the building to talk with an administrator or a secretary or aid your child into the building with school supplies access will surely be granted. Thank you very much with your diligence in this matter and helping us to keep all of the students of Rockland Woods Elementary School safe!
