Morning Drop-off and Afternoon Pick-up (Dismissal)

Below is a map showing the traffic pattern for parent drop-off. These changes are to help alleviate the traffic back-up on Sudley Manor Drive.

From 7:00 - 7:30 a.m. and from 1:30 - 2:10 p.m.:

  • Parents will use the T. Clay Wood Elementary School entrance to enter the parking lot when dropping their students off at school.
  • Proceed to the loop in front of Patriot and drop students off at door #3.
  • Exit at T. Clay Wood Elementary School to leave the parking lot.

Parents will not be able to enter at Patriot High School to access the drop-off loop between 7:00 - 7:30 a.m. and 1:30 - 2:10 p.m. The lane will be blocked by traffic cones. When possible, Patriot High School still recommends leaving home early and utilizing PWCS buses to arrive at school on time.

Thank you for your patience and please drive carefully.
