Carpool Procedures

Attention Parents: Carpool riders will need to sign up to receive a Carpool number.  Please Use this link to sign up.


We ask that you please be patient as our new families to HWM learn the procedure for carpool. Please be reminded that there should be no cell phone use when you enter the school zone; therefore, no one should be on their cell phone in the carpool line or along Westpark Ave. Our school zone begins on South Morrison Blvd. “IT’S THE LAW!”  We ask that you drive carefully, be courteous, and please do not go around other vehicles in the carpool line.

CARPOOL DROP OFF begins at 7:55am daily

Please do not drop your child/children off until a teacher/staff member is on duty.


PK/K, 1st and 2nd grade students and their siblings are dropped off on the primary side.

3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, & 8th grade students are dropped off on the upper side.


Please make sure that your carpool tag is posted where the duty teachers can see it. Also, if you do not have a tag, you will be asked to park and to go into the office so that our staff can verify identification before a student is released to you.

  • Primary Afternoon Carpool Pick Up: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, & 8th grade students and their siblings except for PK/K siblings will be dismissed from the primary side.
