Student Drop Off
In the morning when dropping off your student(s), please stay in line and pull all the way up to the end of the yellow loading zone to drop your child(ren) off. It is very important that you stay in your car to keep the traffic flow moving. If you would like to walk your child(ren) into the building, please park at the west end of the parking lot and walk on the sidewalk.
Student Pick Up
Please pull into the line of cars and wait. We would like for you to pull all the way down to the end of the yellow loading zone, leaving some space for students to walk. We can then load multiple children at once. The students exit the building at approximately 2:50, and it usually takes about 6 minutes to get through the entire line. If you do not want to wait in line, please come at about 2:55 and you will be able to proceed quickly. If you come early and do not want to wait in line, please park at the west end of the parking lot and get out of your car to pick up your child(ren). The parking spaces parallel to the line in front of the building are NOT a safe spot to park to pick up your child(ren).

Hello from the Unity West PTO!
It's hard to believe, but another school year will soon be underway and the PTO is already hard at work!
As you are already aware, registration is next week on August 5 and 6. The PTO will be selling apparel both days, and we need some volunteers. To check out the shifts and sign up for a spot, click here. All volunteers will get a $10 credit to use toward apparel.
You can also order apparel online: http://unityrockets.storenvy.com/. This online store will be open through August 12, and garments will be distributed through Unity West the week of August 17. No orders will be shipped. The store will reopen after the first set of orders have been processed, probably by August 13 or 14, and will remain open through Open House. The items will be delivered about a week after Open House.
Finally, the first PTO Meeting will be on Tuesday, August 11, at 6:30 pm in the Unity West Library. We hope you will join us as we begin discussing all of the events for the 2015-16 school year!
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Unity West PTO
