Dear Wellington Families,
We had a successful first few days of school last week. It was heartwarming to see so many smiling faces back at Wellington! Thank you to everyone for your help to ensure that ALL students arrived to Wellington safely last week, it does take a village! On that note, some reminders regarding arrival and dismissal at Wellington:
Parking: Parking is truly a challenge at Wellington Elementary School. Please be sure to carefully read the Family Handbook for information about how our typical arrival and dismissal processes work, as well as how we manage parking vehicles!
Supervised Morning Drop-Off: We will continue to offer supervised morning drop-off in the main parking lot loop (on the turf/flagpole-side of the school) each day from 8:25AM-8:35AM. Please do NOT ever bring students to be dropped-off prior to 8:25AM as there is no one to supervise them getting out of the car OR inside the school.
1. When students arrive to school between 8:25AM and 8:35AM (no earlier or later), they will simply enter the school from either set of main doors.
2. Parents/guardians may escort students to either main door of the school to wait with students until 8:35AM, or students can simply proceed, on their own, to the designated waiting areas for their class by entering the school at the “Hug and Go” sign with family members!
3. Hug and Go: Students and parents/guardians “Hug and Go” at the school’s door each day. This is necessary because our student population is so large that we cannot accommodate non-staff adults in the school during arrival. If you have a special circumstance, please see Annemarie Stewart or Sheila Walsh.
4. For security purposes, all parents/guardians are asked to wait on the appropriate side of the school for students to dismiss and not to enter the school for the purpose of waiting or crossing through to the other side of the school. Thank you.
And, how are the children? Well, very well indeed.
