    The doors to Winchester Community High School and Driver Middle School do not open until 8:00 a.m.

    Parents who drop students off in the morning or who pick students up should do so at Door #21.  This is the southeast entrance of the school leading to the gymnasiums.  The parking lot has one-way traffic near this doorway.  Traffic must approach the door from the east and exit toward the south.

    At 3:15 p.m. a bell rings to dismiss classes. Students who ride a bus are able to leave the building at that time.  All other students are to remain in the building until 3:21 p.m. to allow the bus traffic to leave the school grounds.  Driver Middle School students exit from door #25.

    Baker Elementary doors will not open until 7:50 AM.  Deerfield Elementary and Willard Elementary School will open their doors at 8:00 AM.  Parents are not to send students to school before these times.  We recommend that elementary students not arrive until 8:00 AM.  

    Bus routes and drivers should be somewhat similar to the past school year.  Drivers will be contacting parents regarding pick-up and delivery times before the first day of school.   

    Parents are reminded that transportation to babysitters must be requested on forms available at the schools.  The School Corporation will address those requests ONLY AFTER all regular transportation is finalized.  It may take up to two weeks after the start of school to make special transportation accommodations.  Parents are responsible for transportation to and from babysitters until notified by the transportation office that their request has been granted.
