Our top priority at Cherokee Ridge is student safety. With that in mind, Changes in our Car line pickup and drop off procedures. The first couple of weeks back in the carline are always more challenging. Please be patient with us while we train our parents, students, and staff to improve this process.



Morning Changes


1)    Cars will be pulling all the way to the end of the sidewalk past the main entrance for drop-off and pickup.

2)    Parents, please stay inside your vehicle when in the car rider line.

3)    Please move when directed.

4)    Students that can exit their own vehicle independently may do so when directed by staff.

5)    It helps for students to enter/exit from the passenger side.

Parents are allowed to walk their students into the building before 7:30AM, for the first two weeks. Please park in the visitor parking lot



Afternoon Changes

2)    Cars will be pulling all the way to the end of the sidewalk past the main entrance for drop-off and pickup.

3)    Parents, please stay inside your vehicle when in the car rider line.

4)    We will continue to require the school issued car rider tags for pickup. You will need to park and go into the office to verify your identity, if you do not have your tag.

As Principal at Cherokee Ridge, my mission is to create a safe, structured environment that inspires students to become life-long learners and responsible citizens.

I am very excited for the opportunity to serve the students, teachers, and community here at Cherokee Ridge. This will be my 20th year in education. I have been an administrator, teacher, and coach at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.

I know the importance of the educational foundation we set at the elementary level, because I know the skills our students will need to be successful throughout their lives. My goal is for our students to be successful when they are employed, enlisted, or enrolled, as adults.

Parents are encouraged to contact me via email at zacwilson@walkerschools.org or 706-375-9831

Cherokee RIdge Elementary, building the foundation for graduation- ready for college, work, and life!
