The front circle of Warrensburg Elementary is the main entrance to the school. Parents can either drop their child at the curb, or park in the designated parking lot and walk their child in. It is expected that the front circle area will be congested on the first day of school, so parents are urged to park on either Elm Street or Library Avenue. All parents and students must come in the building through the main front entrance. For safety reasons, no student should be dropped in the back of the school. That area is for use only by school buses and staff only.
