ANNOUNCEMENT (3/27/2020)
Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you may be aware the governor has extended the school closure through May 1st; all school activities are currently postponed through this date.

Thank you all for your flexibility and cooperation while picking up student materials! The transition to this alternative learning structure is only possible because of our incredible staff who have been working tirelessly to modify, prepare and create the best possible learning opportunities for our students under the situation we find ourselves in. Without hesitation, the parents and students of the Willow Lake School District can be proud to know they are being served by the best staff in the state!!

All this being said, Monday, March 30th marks our next step in this journey together. Student learning materials and lunches (if requested) will be delivered by school staff in either a bus or other school owned vehicles. Our target delivery window is from 11:00-1:00. Please have a cooler/box/tote (something with a lid) in an obvious location near the front door for material drop off. We will have our drivers honk the horn and would love to wave to our students and families. However, we will only be able to wave in order to respect social distancing and keep to our delivery schedule.

Monday’s delivery will include the learning materials and if requested a student lunch for Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday we will only be making deliveries to those who have requested school lunch, this delivery will include lunches for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The lunch options may evolve pending availability of supplies. Please note, that the Willow Lake School CANNOT guarantee allergy free content. If your family would like to be added or removed from the lunch delivery please contact the school office by Wednesday morning as the food is ordered each Thursday. **Delivery dates may change due to the school calendar.

For students in grades 9-12, a reminder that your classes are earning credit towards graduation. In order to receive credit each student will need to meet the expectation of the course as provided by the teacher, for this reason it is critical to maintain coursework and open lines of communication with your teachers. Please be sure to check your K-12 email accounts on a regular basis. For all students, the very best thing to do is to remain safe and healthy. Regarding school work, stay in communication with your teachers and keep up with your work the best you can. If assistance is needed, do not hesitate to ask your teacher. Working together we will make it through the challenges of this new learning environment and make it the best we can.

A special note to our seniors and their families: We know this situation has created uncertainty and is impacting a special time in your K-12 school experience. We wish we had answers or a timeline about graduation. However, we want to assure you that we will be doing our very best to preserve this important milestone and will make plans and communicate those as soon as we are able to do so. As you are aware, the current COVID-19 situation changes by the hour, impacting every student in a unique and special way. Know that we care and will do our best as we work through each day. Thank you all for your continued support and please stay safe!

Respectfully, Mr. Lee and Ms. DeWitt
