Welcome Parents! Here is some information that you may find helpful.
School Information and Hours
Willow Lane Elementary
Students are to arrive at school on time each day. If you bring your child to school late, you must walk him or her into the office and sign in. In the case of an absence, please complete an excuse blank or simply write a note and send it to the office within three days of the absence. Extended absences due to vacations should be taken care of prior to the vacation. You can obtain a form from the office.
Our school day is now 9:00 AM-3:20 PM.
We will also be operating on a 5 day cycle. Specials will be on days of the cycle, not days of the week. Please check my specials page for more information.
If there is a change in your child's normal routine, please notify me in writing, either by email or note, on the day the change will occur. I must receive something in writing from a parent if any child is to change his or her normal method of transportation. Adding a telephone number is always helpful in case of questions.
We will have two snack times everyday. If you would like your child to particiate, please send in a healthy snack. It should only consist of two things: water and something to eat. Please remember that we only have about 10 minutes for snack. When packing keep this in mind and please be sure that your child is able to open the container his or herself.
**Do not send in ANY foods with peanut products due to possible severe allergies**
Students may bring in a non-edible treat for his or her birthday. Summer birthdays will be celebrated towards the end of the year. Participation in this is completely optional.
We have 25 students in our class
Our classroom couldn't run without parent volunteers! I'd love to have you in for parties, centers and/or being a Guest Speaker. If you'd like to be a Guest Speaker, you must have a signed and notarized affidavit on file. Click here to access the form.
If you would like to volunteer for centers and would be in the building on a regular basis, you must file a Criminal Background and a Child Abuse check with the state. These must also be turned in to the Central Administration Offices.
Scholastic Book orders are a great way to build your child's library. Once a month, I'll send home the order form, if you choose to order you can either send it back to me at school with a check written out to Scholastic Book Orders, or you can place your order online. By ordering online, you are allowing us to receive free books for our classroom library! They have set up a new system online where there are more buying options and your own personal login.
