It has been very busy in the Kiss and Ride area and the parking lot.  The Kiss and Ride zone is meant as a drop and go area.  Cars are not to be parked and left unattended.  If you need to park, pull into a parking spot or park on the available side streets.  We need to keep the parking lot and the bus area clear and safe.


Do you have a great idea for future fundraising at William C. Winegard or some time to volunteer? Please send us an email at [email protected]

As we move into the early spring season, our yard can become wet, icy and slippery. Staff send reminders to children who like to ‘explore’ our puddles and mud of the need to stay away from these areas for both safety and cleanliness reasons. We will close muddy, icy and wet areas when needed. However, it is inevitable that some children will find mud and become wet and dirty. Please consider adding an extra pair of socks and pants to your child’s backpack.  Waterproof pants or splash pants are also a great idea! 

During the spring we will be conducting the following drills:
– 3 Fire Drills
– Severe Weather Drill
– Bomb Threat Drill
– Lockdown Drill  

Our School Safety officer, Natasha Grant, will be joining us for our Lockdown Drill in late March.
