School safety and student safety issues related to traffic:
It has been brought to our attention that Elementary students are being allowed to get out of cars and play while waiting in the car rider line at West Blocton Middle School. This is not acceptable, because it is a safety issue. Also, no one should be on the campus without coming thru the office.
The buses unload in front of the school from 7:20 - 7:40 a.m. Therefore, the front of the school is closed to all other traffic from 7:20 - 7:40 a.m., except for staff parking. Car riders are dropped off in the back of school from 7:20 - 7:40 a.m. There is no thru traffic in back of the school after 7:40 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
There is no thru traffic in the parking area on the lunchroom side of the building. Children can be in this area for various activities. Traffic signs should be adhered to around the campus. For the safety of our children, please use extreme caution and drive slowly on the West Blocton Middle School campus.
There is no supervision of students before 7:20 am and after 3:20 pm at West Blocton Middle School.
The Boys and Girls Basketball Team seasons are starting. Please check the West Blocton Middle School's website for additional information.
There is no school on November 12th for Veterans holiday. School will be closed the week of November 19th - 23rd, because of the Thanksgiving Holidays.
Thank you for your continuous support of our children.
