Welcome to West Lauderdale Elementary!  Thank you for visiting our school site.  We hope that you are able to find valuable information about our school.  Our focus remains the same, continuing growth and academic excellence.  We are thankful for such strong community and parental support.  We believe that it is imperative if we are to produce well-rounded citizens.


We strive to create an atmosphere that is inviting, yet safe and conducive to learning.  We welcome you to our campus, and ask that you be mindful of campus procedures.


  • For the safety of students and staff, no cell phones while in the pick-up lanes
  • All visitors must report to the office before going to a classroom
  • In order to protect instructional time, if you need to speak with a teacher, please do so before 8:00 or after 3:00, or call to set up an appointment 
  • Remember to bring doctor's notes for early checkouts and/or absences (parents may write up to five parent notes per semester)
  • All checkouts must be done through the office.  There will be no checkouts after 2:15.   After 2:15, parents must remain in the pick-up line. 
  • There will be no early release Wednesdays.  Dismissal everyday is 2:45.
  • Due to safety and privacy reasons, we no longer take requests over the phone for changes in transportation.  If your child will be going home a different way, you must either fax, email, or send a written note (remember to date and sign).  All requests must be received by 2:00 each day.  School fax number is 601-737-8962.
  • School officially begins at 8:00.  Students are considered tardy after this time and will need to stop in the office for a tardy slip.
  • Uniform colors for tops are red, black, or white.  Bottoms are black or khaki.  Jackets colors are red, black, white, or khaki.  (Please be mindful of this when purchasing winter jackets).  Camouflage is not acceptable outer wear. 


We appreciate your cooperation as we strive to maintain the best possible learning environment for every child that we teach.  Feel free to contact us with any questions that you might have.


Rosemary Harris, Principal
