Workman MS ......... GOING GOLD!

This week, Workman Middle School is collecting character band aids to donate to the children's hospital.  A very young student who recently fought and beat a form of childhood cancer has challenged the Escambia county schools to raise funds or collect band aids.  A competition is taking place between 1-2 block classes on 'B' days for each grade level.

 

On Friday, September 19, we ask that all of our students and staff wear

Gold/Yellow

in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

INFORMATION FOR WALKERS

MORNING PROCEDURES:  Students coming from the east will enter the campus through the gate on Langley Avenue that is adjacent to our Dean's Portable.  Students entering campus from the west will enter through the gate between Holm Elementary and Workman and proceed to the cafeteria's back ramp and entrance.  Students should not arrive before 8:50a.m.  There is no supervision available before this time.

 

DISMISSAL PROCEDURES:  Walkers will report to the media center at dismissal.  All students are held in the media center until our buses have cleared.  At that time, students going west will be escorted to the gate.  Students going east will be escorted through the gate on Langley beside the Dean's portable.  Students who cross the street will be escorted by the crossing guard.  Parents should not be picking students up curbside per state statute.  All car riders should follow proper procedures and enter through the gate on Langley near the convenience store. Please reference Officer Mike Cyr's page (our school resource officer - Our School drop down menu) for specifics on state statutes concerning school zones.

DISMISSAL PROCEDURES 2014-15

JH Workman Parents:

Due to traffic safety concerns, JH Workman Middle School has changed their AFTERNOON DISMISSAL procedures and locations for the 2014-15 school year.

MORNING PROCEDURES

There will be NO change to the location that students will be dropped off in the morning.  Parents may drop off their children in the FRONT OF THE SCHOOL no earlier than 8:50am.  Students are not allowed to linger on campus property prior to that time as there is no supervision available for our students.

AFTERNOON PROCEDURES - (PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY)

BUS AFTERNOON PICK UP - BUSES WILL NOW PICK UP STUDENTS IN THE FRONT OF THE SCHOOL.  ALL AREAS OF THE FRONT OF THE SCHOOL WILL BE BLOCKED OFF AND THERE WILL BE NO AVAILABLE PARKING AS BUSES COME ON TO CAMPUS.

  • Cars are not to park or wait in the middle of lanes located in the front of the school after 3:15 p.m.
  • Students are not allowed to be checked out after 3:15pm.  If you have an emergency and need to pick up your child, you will have the ability to enter through the middle gates located in the front of the school on Lanier Drive.  Please ensure when finding a parking space not to block buses from lining up.
  • Any cars parked in the parking areas after 3:30pm (or when buses arrive) might be blocked in until the buses clear the campus (at approximately 4:15pm)

‚ÄčCAR RIDER LANE - CARS MAY ENTER THE CAMPUS NO EARLIER THAN 3:30pm.  THE ENTRANCE FOR CAR RIDERS WILL BE THE GATE ON LANGLEY DRIVE CLOSEST TO THE CONVENIENCE STORE BY THE WASHINGTON HS TRACK.  (See map for details)

  • Parents will enter in one lane through gate and must stay to the right since it is designated a two way road.
  • A staff member will direct cars to split into a double lane.  Please follow directions of staff members asked to direct traffic.
  • As you enter the campus, cars will be allowed to make two car lines (follow lines and cones) into the Pick Up Zone.  There will be a limited number of cars in each line.  Students being picked up will enter their vehicles safely in shifts.
  • Cars will be moved to the end of the Holm Elementary ramp and stopped until students enter vehicles safely.
  • All cars in the Pick Up Zone will be directed as to when they will be released to exit the campus.
  • For the safety of students and staff directing traffic, parents are not to drive outside the lanes designated for pickup.
  • Your patience is appreciated as we move vehicles simultaneously and in shifts.
  • Because of the limited number of vehicles in the Pick Up Zone, there may be wait time prior to getting to your child.
  • Follow signs and ask for help if you are not sure how this process will work or if you do not know where you are to line up.

OF GREAT IMPORTANCE

  • Please advise your child that they are to get into their vehicles as soon as they locate you in the Pick Up Zone.  Students may utilize their cell phones so please feel free to make calls and let them know the location of your vehicle.
  • If your child is not in your vehicle at the time we move vehicles out of the car rider line, you will be ask to drive around campus and return through the car rider line.  It is important that students are attentive to their vehicles.
  • Vehicles will be stopped when buses exit the campus.  Buses will have the right of way.

We appreciate your cooperation as we start a new school year.  Please review the map on our website homepage.  

If you have questions, please call 850-494-5665.  

Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring student safety on our campus.
