    Parking Lot Safety

    Just a few reminders to keep our children safe and the school running smoothly on a daily basis:

    • Please do not enter through the Back Exit.
    • We ask that ANYTIME you are needing to pick up your child up early that this is done by 2:15pm. The end of the day gets busy. We also ask that you do not park in the bus loop, we have busses and daycare vans that are using the loop during dismissal.
    • We know that there are times when you need to change how your child goes home. We ask that you make that change by 2:15pm. This will ensure that we have enough time to get your child’s teacher the message of the change.
    • If your child is a walker or biker rider, they will depart the school from the front of the school and walk across the street to the park. You can meet your child across the street at the park, or your child can walk or ride their bike home. We ask that you not come on campus to meet your child in the front of the school.
    • Please do not meet your child on the front benches.
    • The front loop is for buses and the back is for car pick-up.
    • Please park in a designated spot and please do not block traffic.

    PLEASE REMEMBER -- When dropping off your children at school, please make sure they are getting out of the vehicle in a designated drop-off area:

    • In the back, our car riders exit their vehicles on the sidewalk side of the parent loop. We lock the doors at the back parent loop at 7:30 am. If you arrive after 7:30 am please come to the front of the school. Please do not drop off your child in the back if there is not an adult present.
    • In the front, our school busses and vehicles exit on the sidewalk side in front of the school.
    • Please do not drop off your children at the teacher's parking lot area at the front of the school, please use either loop.
    • Please utilize hands-free devices when driving on our campus.
    • Please do not enter through the back Exit.



    There is a buzz-in system for the front door. Each day at 7:40 am, the doors will be locked, and all visitors will need to press the buzzer to enter the building. The front office will ask to see an ID before allowing anyone into the building. There are no exceptions.


    During dismissal, the front lot for busses, daycare, bike riders, and walkers only. Bike riders will also be dismissed from the front of the building (students will walk their bikes to the corner with a crossing guard). The back loop is used for car riders.

    All vehicles must have a Wilderness Oak Car Tag sign in their dashboard. (Ask your child's teacher or the front office if you need additional signs).


    If you are needing a Car Line Pick-up Sign please let the front office (klabat1@neisd.net) know if is a permanent tag or for a one-time use.

    Please let us know if your tag is ever taken without your knowledge, so that we can replace the number of your tag and your child's tag.


    If you need to sign-out your student early, please do so before 2:00 pm. After this time we are in transition as we prepare for dismissal. Please inform the front office and teacher that your child will leave early for the day.


    Please make sure you email your child's teacher or send a written note if there will be a change in dismissal plans for your child. If we do not receive changes in writing, your child will be sent home the way he or she normally goes home.


    If your student is going to be absent for any reason, please let Krista Labat know by email: klabat1@neisd.net or by phone: (210) 407-9201 to report the absence. Upon their return to school you will need to send a written note or a doctor's note within 4 days of the absence.
