No School Friday, December 13 due to incoming winter weather!
(Every child's dream and every Superintendent's nightmare!)
Willard has improved communication processes for school cancellation by leaps and bounds compared to days gone by when kids would sit by the radio and tune in KTTS while silently praying to hear their school called. The district now implements several different ways to communicate with parents but BEWARE there are fake communications being sent out using Social Media! Unfortunately individuals are using the Internet attempting to portray school officials and issue false information. This has not only occurred in Willard but is a growing problem throughout public schools. In order to be confident that you have accurate information you should review the following official school cancellation methods:
- Check the district website at www.willardschools.net. This is the most reliable source of information. Every effort is made to post closings by 5:30a.m.
- Check our district Facebook page (www.facebook.com/willardschools) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/willardschools) account.
- Our district notification service sends an automated email, text message, and/or phone call to parents with their information set up in our Student Information System.
- The district notifies media outlets to add Willard schools to their list of closings. Keep in mind however that this can be the LEAST RELIABLE source of information. It's always best to confirm what you see or hear in the media.
It is going to be a good weekend to get close to the wood stove, cook a big pot of chili, and watch the Chiefs play the Raiders. That rivalry is almost as big as Willard vs Republic!!!!!!
Have a great weekend!
