Dr. William Burrus Elementary at Drakes Creek

WBE Arrival Procedures

Single Car Rider Lane

Doors will open each morning at 8:00. All students who arrive prior to 8:15 will report to the gym or breakfast. Students arriving to school after 8:15 will report to their classroom. Parents will not be allowed to go to classrooms unless they have a scheduled meeting with the teacher. ALL visitors must sign in to the office. School begins at 8:30. It is our goal to have students in their seat at 8:30.

All Cars Will Pull In The Lane Closest To The Sidewalk

The first car in line should pull all the way up to designated area identified by staff. Please do not wait to reach the front doors before letting your child out of the car. Any vehicle against the front sidewalk should let their child out on the RIGHT HAND SIDE ONLY. Once your child is out of the car, pull forward and exit. There will be staff available to assist children. We ask that parents do not get out of the car. If a parent is having difficulty getting the child out of the car please pull back around into the parking lot and signal a staff member for assistance.


We encourage all parents to utilize the car rider line in the morning for arrival. We have staff positioned to assist children out of vehicles. The parking lot may not be used as a drop off location. This is for parents who are volunteering or have other business to attend to in the school. Please always cross at the crosswalk when crossing the line of traffic. This will be strictly enforced.

Bus Lane

Please, do not park in the bus lane at any time.

**Visitors and volunteers are always welcome at WBE, but we do ask that students report to their classrooms alone. Teachers are extremely busy during morning arrival as they have students to greet and get ready for their day. Parents who feel the need to walk their children in should say their goodbyes at the front door. Only scheduled visitors will be admitted to classrooms. All visitors must check in with the office through our Lobby Guard system


All walkers must be escorted to the front door by an adult for drop off.
