School Procedures


 School Start and End Times

Wilderness Oak staff supervision begins at 7:00 am. Breakfast is served from 7:00 - 7:30 am.


Our start time is 7:30 am, and students are counted tardy at 7:40 am. If students are tardy, a parent MUST walk into the school with them. Please do not drop them off and allow them to walk in alone. Your child will be marked absent if they arrive after 9:15 am without a doctor's note.

 Our dismissal is at 2:55 pm.


Parking Lot Safety

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 sidewalk side of the parent loop.
  • 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 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 between 7:00am - 3:30pm.



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.



The cafeteria is open for breakfast from 7:00 - 7:30 am. Please do not drop students off prior to 7:00, as we are not staffed to adequately supervise them until that time.

Students who arrive after 7:40 MUST BE WALKED INTO SCHOOL WITH AN ADULT.



The front lot is for picking up our busses, daycare, 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 lot is used for car riders.

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



Please use the crosswalks when crossing the street to ensure your safety and the safety of our students.

San Antonio is a Hands Free Zone, so please do not use your mobile phone when driving through the drop-off and pick-up lines.

Please adhere to handicap parking laws and leave those spaces available.
