Our school day begins at 7:45 a.m. every day. Students should be dropped off between 7:30 and 7:45 a.m. Please be sure to have your child(ren) here on time. All students who arrive after 7:50 a.m. must sign in at the office with a parent. If your child will not be present, please call and inform the attendance office at (804) 780-4821.
Parents will not be permitted to escort their child(ren) to class this school year. We have several staff members who will serve as morning greeters who will make sure students get to class. We recognize that this may be difficult but we are asking for your patience and cooperation with ensuring that we keep our students and staff safe.
Dismissal will begin at 2:45 p.m. For safety and organization, all students will receive a bookbag tag and two guardian cards. If you will be picking up your child, please bring your guardian card to the appropriate pick up location. You will then present your card to the Woodville staff member assigned to the exit and your child will be walked out to you.
Drop off/Pick up Locations
Grades 4 & 5 - Students will enter and exit through the front door.
Grades 2 & 3 - Students will enter and exit through door 2.
