FOR WLCSD FAMILIES

WHAT IS NEW?

A Message from WLCSD

WLCSD Student Pantry

The Student Pantry continues to provide food to approximately 85 families in the Walled Lake Consolidated School District each week. The Pantry is in need of the following perishable items: milk, eggs and bread. We are also in need of canned vegetables. If you would like to donate any of these items, please see the SignUp Genius link below. The Pantry continues to work the Hospitality House and local groceries to help with the food supply. The generosity of donations from volunteers is greatly appreciated too!

Playground Equipment

Please remember all playground structures, swings, slides, etc. are still closed. You can use walking tracks and fields if you would like. Thank you.

The pantries were filled by many other families from across the WLCSD. On behalf of all elementary schools, we cannot thank you enough for your generosity.
