Car Rider Procedure

Waco Elementary School Car Rider Procedures


The procedures below have been established for dropping off/picking up non-transported students. These procedures assist the school with maintaining a safe and orderly environment.


Waco Elementary School unlocks the doors and begins accepting students at 7:20 a.m. Do not drop you student at school before 7:20 a.m. The school does not provide supervision for students or unlock the doors to the building at any time before 7:20 a.m. Afternoon car riders will be dismissed at 2:40 p.m.

All car riders will report the cafeteria to eat breakfast, or to their classroom to begin their day.


If your child arrives at school past 7:45 a.m. or checks out of school prior to 2:45 p.m., they will be counted as tardy. This tardy will be reflected on your child’s attendance record.


All students arriving on campus after the 7:45 a.m. tardy bell, will need to enter through the main entrance of the building. If you arrive after 7:45 a.m. you must park in a parking space and escort your child into the building in order to sign the documentation required.



NO CHANGES WILL BE TAKEN OVER THE PHONE OR BY EMAIL. It is a child safety issue as well as a liability issue. Changes will be taken by either a hand-written, typed or faxed note, with parent/guardian signature and date. If you fax a note, you must ensure that it was received. Please get any faxed changes to us BY 2:00 p.m. to ensure we have time to process them. Fax #: 1-859-369-3819. It will be the responsibility of the parent/guardian to notify an adult, identified on the check-out card, in the event of an emergency to pick the child up from the school office no later than 2:40 p.m. or be present at the arrival destination!
