Dismissal Information

Westgate Families:

Safety is the most important goal of our arrival and dismissal procedures. Please follow the detailed procedures below.


We have three parking lots open every day before and after school: the main lot off of 96 th Ave., the primary playground off of 220 th St. SW & the intermediate playground. Choose the lot that works best for you. Parking is very limited. If you use street parking, please be respectful of the property of Westgate’s neighbors.

AM Drop-off:

School begins at 8:40 each day. Students should arrive at school no earlier than 8:20 . There is no supervision before this time.

For arrival you may choose to: 

· Park in one of our lots and walk your child to class.

· Use the pickup & drop-off lane in our main parking lot.

 For arrival only, cars may enter the drop-off lane from the south and northbound lanes of 96 th Ave. Please be courteous and allow for alternating entrance to the lot.

Cars must pull as far forward in the drop-off lane as possible.

Students may only exit the car on the right hand side of the vehicle.

PM Pickup:

The school day ends at 3:10 each day with the exception of early dismissal days when we release at 11:40.

For dismissal you may choose to:

· Park in one of our lots and wait for your child in one of our designated Parent Pick-up Areas in the front of the school.

· Use the pickup and drop-off lane in our main parking lot.

For dismissal all cars waiting to enter the pick-up lane must enter the parking lot from the northbound lane of 96 th Ave.

Entering the pick-up lane from the southbound lane of 96 th Ave. is not allowed . This is not fair to the drivers waiting their turn in the other lane.

No waiting is allowed in the southbound lane of 96 th Ave. If you are in this lane, you will be asked to move. For safety reasons, we cannot have both lanes of traffic blocked.

Meeting Your Child after School:

Each day, we will dismiss our bus riders a few minutes before our walkers and car riders. It is important during the bus rider dismissal that parents stay clear of the front of the building so that students may easily access their buses. Parents are asked to wait in the designated Parent Pickup Areas (in front of our kindergarten classrooms and along the west side for the gymnasium) until the second dismissal bell. This will help reduce the congestion in front of the school at dismissal.

Thank you for your assistance in seeing that these procedures run safely and efficiently. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ms Jung Lathrop directly at 425-431-7474.
