WE ARE GLAD YOUR CHILD IS HERE!
Are you excited? We are! We are looking forward to a fantastic school year and hope you and your child are too!
Breakfast & Lunch
Due to the Healthy Hunger-Free Act of 2010 and the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), all students at Willow Springs Elementary will eat breakfast and lunch free of charge. Parents/guardians do not need to fill out a free/reduced meal application, but the district did email out an income survey that must be completed. Parents/guardians may still put money on student's meal accounts to purchase a la carte items.
Breakfast time is between 7:30 - 8:00 am. Breakfast will be eaten in the classroom and expected to be cleaned up by 8:00 am. If your child chooses to eat breakfast at school, please ensure they are getting to school with enough time to eat their meal. This will help them start their day off well!
Dismissal will begin at 3:30 pm. Please review the map below for dismissal details. Walkers will be released at the east and west gates. Parents wanting to walk with their children are asked to meet their children at the east/west gate (yellow and green arrows below). Due to safety and lack of space, there will no longer be a parent walk-up location at the front of the school. There will also not be parking available in the front of the building during dismissal. Please remain in your vehicle while in the parent valet pick-up line (blue arrows below). We appreciate your patience during dismissal the first couple of weeks. Dismissal should speed up as students and staff get to practice. Thank you for helping keep our students as safe as possible!
**The office closes from 2:45-3:30 daily to prepare for a safe dismissal. Please refrain from signing your child out early unless your child has a medical appointment. In this case, you will need to sign them out prior to 2:45 pm and submit a doctor's note upon your child's return the following day.
