The school will help to facilitate communication between families interested in carpooling. Please direct all questions regarding bus services or carpools to Jenny Young, Administrative Assistant at (818) 986-5045 or email@example.com.
We require all families who wish to drive their students to school to have at least two Westmark students in the car. Carpool drop off begins at 7:30 am each day (8:30 on late start Thursdays); carpool pickup begins at 2:45 for Lower School students and at 3:00 p.m. for Middle and Upper School students.
Single rider cars:
For those families who cannot carpool or use the bus transportation provided, single rider students must be dropped off before 7:30 a.m. and be picked up at 3:20 p.m.
Changes in normal pickup routine:
It is imperative that the school is notified as early in the day as possible if your student is going home with another student, Uber or other ride-sharing service, or anyone other than the scheduled routine pickup. WE CANNOT RELEASE YOUR STUDENT to anyone other than those listed on your Authorization for Release on file at school without proper written/email notification. WE HAVE SET UP THE SPECIAL EMAIL BELOW FOR THIS PURPOSE so that all necessary parties are aware of any change in plans.
If your family is interested in a carpool, please contact Jenny Young at extension 310 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Drop off and Pick up
In consideration of our neighbors and to promote student safety, all students will be required to be dropped off and/or picked up on campus. This will include ALL divisions of the school (i.e. Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools). Students may not park or be dropped off on surrounding streets and walk onto campus.
FOR THOSE FAMILIES WHO ARE UNABLE TO USE BUS TRANSPORTATION OR CARPOOL, STUDENTS MUST ARRIVE BEFORE 7:30 A.M. OR AFTER 8:00 AM. IN THE AFTERNOON, PICKUP IS AT 3:20 PM.
Single Student Drop Off & Pick Up
For those families who cannot carpool or use the bus transportation provided, we will accommodate individual drop-offs and pickups with staggered drop-off and pickup times. Individual students can be dropped off before 7:30 a.m. and be picked up at 3:20 p.m.
Family Identification Placards
Family Identification Placards provided to each family by the school must be placed on the right side of the dashboard prior to entering campus each day and should remain visible while on campus to assist our traffic moderators during carpool pickup. If you need a replacement placard, please contact Viviana at the front desk.
