Parent Drop Off and Pick Up Plan
Key to School Map:
There are 2 drop off points on campus for parents of students in First through Sixth Grade.
The backside of the building in the pull through area.
The south side parking lot, only at the curb.
Do not double park, you will be asked to move.
Pick up is at one of the two designated spots in the backside pull-through. These spots are on the backside of the building in the pull through area. If you have multiple children, they should be ready to meet you at your vehicle. Meet up spots are always at the youngest child’s grade level pick up designation.
In the south parking lot, parents may pick up curbside only. Do not double park, since it becomes a safety hazard and is inconvenient for other drivers. You will be asked to move.
Parents may park on the East side of 43rd Street and walk up to meet your child in the front of the school or park at the church south of the school.
All parents who use the backside pull through MUST drive slowly. Please yield to any bus entering the parking lot on the north side of campus.
There is absolutely no additional foot traffic allowed across the bus loading zones (North side of campus in the parking lot). Bus zones are marked with a white “X”.
The red rectangles are stopping points where parent traffic will yield to pedestrian crossing points or other vehicles.
We would encourage parents who are new to WWA to drive through the pull through, prior to the first day of school or on the first day to familiarize yourself with these areas.
NO Morning Drop Off prior to 8:15 AM, unless you are in the Mascot Program.
Breakfast Drop Off in the south lot and students can walk directly through the gate into the cafeteria after 8:15 AM, no earlier.
Arrival and Departure
Safety of each and every child in our building is of upmost importance. In an effort to provide for the safety of each child, there is playground supervision thirty minutes before school begins. Students should not arrive at school more than thirty minutes before school begins and should leave promptly at dismissal time. Parents of students who arrive too early on a regular basis will be contacted to resolve this situation.
Before and after school programs are available for families that need extended care for their children. Please contact (602) 449-7300 for more information.
All students who are late for school must enter through the front lobby doors, and report to the office for a tardy pass.
Campus Visit Procedures
We Welcome Visitors to Whispering Wind!
For the SAFETY AND SECURITY of all our students, all exterior doors will be locked during school hours with the exception of the front entrance doors leading into the office lobby. All parents and visitors must enter through these doors, report to the office, sign in, wear a "Visitor" Pass while in building. This is true of students who are late for school also.
Parents are encouraged to visit our school whether to observe a class program, conference with a teacher or principal, or to volunteer your services. Before visiting a classroom, however, please make arrangements with the teacher in advance. You are still required to report to the front office, our Receptionist will contact the teacher upon your arrival. Meeting to conference with the teacher while classes are in session is inappropriate, and discouraged. It is expected that your visit will not interrupt the normal days' classroom activities, this is for the protection of your child, and is required by State law.
