Time to go already?

Any transportation changes must be

done in writing.

Car Riders:

  • Car rider numbers begin to be called around 2:15 P.M. 

  • Hang your car tag from your rearview mirror.

    • Cut the car tag (as shown) on an angle, then cut around the white circle to create a hook.​

  • Pay attention to your surroundings. 

    • Keep a minimum distance between your car and the car in front of you. ​

    • Watch for students who are walking.

  • Slow and/or stop the vehicle until the staff members entering the car number has indicated the number has been added.

  • Parents/Guardians need to stay in their cars and display the car rider number by cutting out the circle and hanging the car tag from the rearview mirror.  If you have forgotten your car rider number, please park and wait in your car until 2:45 P.M. or until the line of cars is down to the last 5 or less cars.  At that time you may come to the canopy with your state issued ID to be verified.

    • Please understand that even though some staff members know some parents, we need to ensure each child's safety and verify IDs if there is no car rider number.


Students who are walking home will be escorted to Miller Road by a Waddell staff member.

  • Please remind your child(ren) to walk with the staff member. It is unsafe for your child(ren) to run ahead.
