Transportation

General Information: West Florida Baptist Academy does not provide transportation to or from school for any student.

All students are to be dropped off in the mornings between 7:30 and 7:55 a.m. and to be picked up by 2:55 p.m. (12:55 p.m. on Wednesdays). Parents are to drop the students off at the assigned drop off location, and when picking the students up they are to wait in the appropriate line until their student comes to the car. No parent is to park their car and come in the building to pick up their student within the fifteen minutes prior to or during regular pick up times. If you need to come in to get your child, come early, park and go directly to the office, not the classroom. Students not picked up in the pickup line must be signed out in the office or the extended care room. Parents are not to park in the area marked NO PARKING nor are they to park in the handicapped parking spaces unless authorized to do so. For the safety of our students no one will be allowed to drive between buildings during pick up hours. Please do not park on the grassy areas of our campus.

The office needs to be informed of any changes in transportation arrangements.

Student Drivers: It is a privilege, not a right, to drive on campus. Students who drive to school must first secure permission from the office in advance and show a valid drivers license and proof of insurance. They will be given a registration card and instructions concerning driving on campus when they register. Failure to abide by these instructions may result in the loss of the privilege to drive on campus.

Once a vehicle is parked on campus, students may not return to it until dismissal without permission from the office. There will be no loitering in or around parked cars before or after school. Under no circumstances will couples be allowed in parked cars.

The school is not responsible for damage to vehicles in the parking lot. This needs to be handled through private insurance companies.

Students are not permitted to transport other students to or from school without written permission from all parents involved and the school administration. This includes transportation to and from after-school activities. When traveling to and from school activities, students must remain with the assigned vehicle both going to and returning from the activity unless picked up by their own parent.

No student is to have in their car items, which would be inappropriate at school (see prohibited items under Discipline). We reserve the right to have periodic checks of cars at our discretion. For the safety of our students no one will be allowed to drive between buildings during pick up hours.
