Walter C. Black Elementary School


This year, our Music teacher, Mrs. Halat created a special music experience for our students where the entire grade level performed various songs together during our Spring Fling. The performance was videotaped by our Fine Arts team so we could share it with our school community. We hope you enjoy it! 



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.
