Wilder Elementary is excited to welcome families and students to the 2020-21 school year!  Students in kindergarten through fifth grade will begin through virtual instruction August 28 and will continue to use their district-issued Chromebooks for instructional assignments and activities.  September 4 is the first day for pre-kindergarten.

August 24-27, parents and students will be afforded the opportunity to meet their teachers, pick up materials needed for virtual learning, and receive information for the new school year.  Chromebooks will also be issued to students new to the district or those in need of one. Masks will be worn and social distancing guidelines will be followed at all times. Please check our website and Facebook page daily for the most current and accurate information.

When face-to-face instruction resumes, the following drop-off/pick-up procedures will be followed: The horseshoe on S. Main Street is the only drop-off and pick up area for car riders.  Parking spaces are provided for prekindergarten and kindergarten parents who must walk students to class or pick them up in the afternoon.  If a parent has a conference, please park in the parking spaces provided in the front of the school.  All parents must report to the main office for a pass before going to teachers’ classes for conferences.

All walkers enter and exit through the small gates located on South Main Street.  The student’s address will determine which gate he or she will need to use in the afternoon.  Parents are asked not to park in the church parking lot, on the side of Newberry, or on the side of South Main to secure children.

All day care riders and all bus riders report to the bus port at the end of the 100 Building (fourth grade hall).  All special needs bus riders report to the bus port on Floral Avenue (back of the school).
