Dear Wilburton Families and Parents,

For car pick up during arrival and dismissal, please remember to drive slowly in our school parking lot. Also if you are crossing the parking lot by foot, please remember to use the designated crosswalks so you are more visible to drivers. Thank you for your continued partnership in keeping our school community safe during these pick up and drop off times. 

 

In partnership,
