    Transportation Considerations

    The safety of all our students is our priority!

    Drop off considerations:

    • For the safety of our students we will allow just one line of cars to enter the curve during drop off time, please contemplate to come earlier to avoid tardiness.
    • Pull up as FAR as you can to avoid disrupting the entire flow
    • Remind your children to be ready BEFORE you enter the drop off zone, taking too much time really impacts the flow of the traffic. If your child is not ready please go to the END of the line to avoid upsetting other parents.
    • To help ease the traffic congestion at the start  of the school day, we suggest arranging a drop off and pick location of your child in middle school within a short walking distance  (like Lum school)
    • Be considerate and safe don’t  drop off your child in the middle of the road  

    Pick up Considerations:

    • Be a role model for your child by following traffic and parking regulations. Be kind to our volunteers and other drivers.
    • Pay attention don’t stop the flow of the traffic waiting for your children
    • To help ease the flow of traffic and our disable students please do not park on blue or white zones during pick up time.
    • For the safety of your children please don’t allow them to enter the car in the middle of the road.
    • We suggest arranging a pick up location of your child in middle school within a short walking distance  (like Lum school) of Wood
    • Become a volunteer and help us to direct traffic ones a week or every day.
    Principal's Message

    principal

    Dear Wood Family,

     I want to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year!  We welcome all of our new and returning students and families. I am honored to continue working at Wood with this amazing staff and with all of you. 

    I believe that if students are to excel, they need to feel emotionally and physically safe and connected to the teachers and staff.  As we know, the middle school years can be challenging as well as exciting, and we need to provide students with an education that is relevant, rigorous, engaging and meaningful.

    I want to acknowledge the hard work of our PTA Executive Board.  Ms. Kelly Scott is our new PTA president and has been volunteering in the community in a variety of capacities including Lum’s PTA president and a member of the Alameda Education Foundation.  Come and make a difference with your voice, your vote, and your volunteering spirit. 

    There is nothing more important than the education of our kids. From the custodians that open the school and hang the flag out front before anyone else arrives (and take it down at the end of the day) to the office and support staff--to the teachers in the classroom:  We welcome you all. Together we can go farther, do more, learn more and create happiness and love of learning for “our” children. 

    Sincerely,

    Cammie
