Drop-Off and Pick-Up Before and After School
The beginning and end of the school day are very busy times at Willow Creek. Traffic monitors are in place to ensure the safety of our students. Those directing traffic are employees, teachers and/or parent volunteers. Please be courteous to them, follow their instructions, and drive carefully!
We ask that the guidelines listed below be followed when delivering or picking up children from school:
Pull into the school driveway from East Long Avenue and line up alongside the curb in front of the school. Please pull forward as far as you can so that other cars may enter the driveway.
There is a designated area in front of the building for busses only. The street area southeast of the parking lot is also marked for busses and daycare vans only.
Delivery and pickup areas for cars include the curbside area in front of school, the school side of Long Avenue, and the west side of Willow Way.
Please do not use the parking lot or the southwest side of Willow Way (nearest the parking lot) unless you accompany your child using the painted crosswalk. The service driveway is completely off-limits.
If children need to cross a street, please insist that they cross at the crosswalk on South Willow Way and East Long Avenue. It may take you a little more time, but modeling this when you are with them may one day prevent an accident.
Do not leave your car unattended in the front of the school or let your child off in front of another car by using the second lane in the driveway area.
Some families are using an area on Mineral Circle as a drop-off or pick-up location. Because this street is curved, it can be dangerous when icy or if cars are not going slowly. The county has painted a crosswalk for students.
