Picking up children after school at Wetumpka Elementary School should be less time consuming due to the implementation of a system known as Car Rider Pro.

WES is the first school in Alabama to use the program, which scans vehicles of parents and caregivers as they arrive at the school and lets the students know when to come out and get into the vehicle.

Students assemble in separate classrooms at the end of the school day. A real-time digital photo board displays their picture and the arrival of the responsible party is virtually acknowledged by a discretely encoded tag through a pair of tower scanners at the gated entrance of the school.
