Traffic Patterns

West Clay Elementary parents must ONLY use the 126th Street entrance when dropping off and picking up students during carpool. College Wood Elementary families will use Shelborne Road.  

WCE Traffic Patterns


AM Carpool: Drop-off may begin at 7:15 am. Parents will pull along the curb in front of the school and drop off their student/s within the drop-off zone indicated by the yellow signs. A staff member will begin greeting students at 7:15 am at the curb. Students should exit the car on the passenger side and walk to the gym until school begins. We will have supervision for students until school begins.

PM Carpool: Parents will line up in front of the school until buses are dismissed at 2:35 pm. Once the buses have left the lot and the bikers/walkers have cleared the lot, cars will be directed to move around the circle in the bus lot. Cars will be directed into 3-4 lines and engines must be turned off. Students will be escorted to cars. Once all students have been placed in cars, each row will be dismissed. 

Bikers/Walkers: These students will meet in the lobby at 2:25 pm and will be dismissed when all school buses are clear from the lots. 

Keeping Students Safe

Safety is our number one priority. Please be patient with staff and other drivers. We do often have a backup on 126th so please be prepared. 

Yellow on the map is where Traffic Directors are positioned. To ensure the safety of all students on campus, the green markings on the map show where roads will be blocked and cars will not have access to these thoroughfares.
