Safety After School
Dear West Parents/Guardians,
It is our intention to get over 500 students home safely after school each day. Therefore, we have specific guidelines in place to make safety a priority. It is important that we follow our Parent Pick Up procedures in the front of the school. As a reminder, the RED bell rings at 3:27 p.m. and the YELLOW bell rings at 3:30 p.m. Therefore, our front parking lot is closed from 3:27 - 3:30 to vehicles that do not have a RED or YELLOW pass. We have been experiencing parents parking in the angled parking spots before the RED bell. This is causing unsafe situations when parents and students are walking across to the parked vehicles. In addition, vehicles trying to pull out of the angled spots are causing a traffic jam as RED and YELLOW bell vehicles are double-parked along the curb. If you do not have a Parent Pick Up pass, you may enter the front pick-up area at 3:35 p.m. We have certified staff supervising the students until all students are picked up. At this time, we are asking that you do not park in an angled spot, but instead use the circle pick up pattern as it was intended. The City of Crystal Lake does not allow parking on Ballard Road. If you are not able to pull into the parking lot, please circle around the block until you are able to pull in. We will keep your student(s) safe--there is no need to hurry or to worry about picking them up right away. We realize there are situations throughout the week that may require you to pick up your student(s) from school; however, if they are assigned a bus, please consider having your student(s) ride the bus when they can. We wanted to give you a heads up that we will be enforcing these guidelines. Beginning Monday, December 2nd, we will be visible in the parking lot enforcing the correct passes entering the parking lot at the proper time.
Mrs. Klinsky and Mrs. Cruz
