- Car Rider Information
Parents are asked to enter through the Poplar Springs student drop off entrance, circle around (using both lanes) and drop off/pick up at the main entrance of the Academies of Discovery building. This is the same procedure as last year.
We have our own WLA Entrance and parking area on Atlanta Hwy (next to the gym) for late check-ins and early check-outs.
- WLA Buses
Morning: We offer bus transportation to students living in the following attendance zones: Myers, McEver, Chicopee Woods, Chestnut Mountain, Friendship, Spouts Springs, and Lyman Hall.
Buses will pick students up from the home address in the morning and drop them at their neighborhood elementary school. A WLA shuttle bus will then transport the students to WLA Elementary and then WLA Middle School.
Afternoon: Students are transported directly home after school. There is an afternoon shuttle to WLA Elementary available to students in the YMCA program.
The safety, security and health of our students and faculty is our number one priority at WLA Middle School. As a result, we will continue to keep all exterior doors securely locked at all times. Visitors are asked to use the outside 2-way intercom to call the WLA office for late arrivals, early check-outs and general assistance. Parents and other visitors will be permitted to enter the building if they have a scheduled meeting with a faculty member or if they volunteer for a special event or classroom activity. Please remember to bring a picture ID when visiting the school.
School uniform is not required for WLA students in grades 6-8.
The Hall County School District’s Dress Code expressly lists items that cannot be worn on page 8 of the student agenda. If students are found to be in violation of the dress code and are not able to reach a parent/ guardian to bring an extra change of clothes, they will be given an alternate clothing option for the remainder of the day.
