STUDENT DROP OFF AND PICK-UP SAFETY RULES

STUDENT DROP OFF AND PICK-UP SAFETY RULES

  1. Yard supervisors are on campus at 7:15 am students are not to be on campus before then.
  2. Students may enter campus through the gate located next to the parking lot on Florinda and Park.  Parents are not allowed on campus.  
  3. Drop-off/Pick-up Zones are located along the South side of Florinda and the West side of Park (along the sides of the school).  The parking lot is not an area to drop off or pick up students.  Students should always use sidewalks and never walk/run across the parking lot. 
  4. Do not drop off students in an area that would have them run across moving traffic.  Students should ALWAYS use designated crossing areas to help prevent dangerous accidents. Students should not walk across the parking lot.  Students should only use designated walkways (sidewalks).   
  5. If you choose to park across the street from our campus when dropping off or picking up your student(s), please understand that your student will need to use the cross walk at 11th/Florinda or at Florinda/Park to get to you.  Do not ask your students to run across traffic.  It is extremely dangerous to cross through oncoming traffic.  
  6. All students and adults should always use the crosswalk.  
  7. If you need to get out of your car for any reason, please park your car in a designated parking area.  Do not leave your car parked in the loading zone.
  8. While in the loading/drop off area, move up to the next available spot.  Please be patient.  For the safety of our students and to make sure the loading area moves along as smooth as possible, please do not double park.  

 We appreciate your help in keeping our students and staff safe!!

Woodrow Wilson Parents & Families,

Welcome to Wilson Junior High, home of the Warriors.  The Wilson Staff is honored to serve the children and families of our community. The administrative team and staff take the safety of our children very seriously. We work to establish positive relationships with all our students and strive to instill and model positive interactions between students. We are a school that provides a high-quality education and opportunities for students to grow and develop.

We aim to foster the development of each child to reach their full potential.

“Our mission is to provide an educational environment which reinforces basic cultural values, ethical behavior, including respect for others, personal integrity, responsibility and accountability. We will work together to provide students with a safe environment in which they can discover their potential and strengthen their motivation for living and learning.

Our School Goals:

We ask parents to remind their students to reach out to the adults on campus if they are experiencing any type of issue in which they need help. We have a fabulous support team ready and willing to assist. Our two counselors, social worker, psychologist and Hanford Police School Resource Officer, along with the rest of the staff, are here to support our student body in working through the issues of adolescence.
