Walter C. Black Elementary School


Parents of in-person students must complete the Attestation Form in Genesis each day their child is scheduled to be in school. Automated calls for those who do not complete the attestation form will go out at 9:00 a.m. for any form not completed prior to 8:50am so it is important to complete the form prior to this time if you do not want to receive the automated call. Additionally, the main office is also required to call when there are outstanding forms so please do everything you can to complete the form prior to your child leaving for school.
Parents can access the attestation form in the Genesis Parent Portal. The directions take you through the steps.


Arrival to School/Parent Drop Off:

  • For students who have siblings in GNR and are arriving by car or walking, WCB students should be dropped off prior to GNR students during arrival time.

  • Our Parent Drop Off Time starts at 8:40am and ends promptly at 9:00am. Anyone arriving after 9:00am will need to park and walk their child to the main office since we no longer have staff on duty.

  • Arriving by Car: Parents will use the parent drop off area located in the WCB Main Parking Lot. Parents should pull all the way up to the small playground at the end of the loop and wait for a staff member to come to the car. Students MUST exit the car curbside and should not exit the car until a staff member signals it is safe to do so. Students need to be ready to exit the car to ensure smooth traffic flow.

    • Cars must enter the Main Office Parking Lot Loop via Harron Avenue and make a right hand turn into the lot.

    • Do not make a left hand turn into the loop. If coming from Stockton Street, cars should take Dutchneck Road to get to Harron Avenue to get to the parking lot.

  • Arriving by Foot: Parents will drop off near the small Kindergarten Playground or the Stockton Street entrance by the cafeteria. A parent/guardian should remain with their child until greeted by a staff member.

Dismissal from School/ Parent Pick Up:

  • All exits along the parking lot loop will be utilized for parent pick up. Dismissal will begin at 3:20pm for walkers and car riders. Stockton Street Walkers will exit via the cafeteria. All other walkers will exit via the parking lot loop and be called via walkie-talkies.

  • Parents who are picking up by car will be issued a car tag to help with efficiency. Students will be called via a walkie-talkie. Please be patient as we work to get students out to cars via the 3 horseshoe exits we are using to keep teachers and students distanced.

  • For students who have siblings in GNR and are arriving by car or walking, GNR students should be picked up prior to WCB students during dismissal.
