Toy Drive begins Dec. 3

Willow Springs will be holding its annual toy drive Dec. 3 – 13.  Students and families can help make the holidays extra special for those in need by donating new toys or clothing. Each student that brings an item to donate will hang a star on the Christmas tree located in the school’s front lobby. Willow Springs students and staff will deliver the toys to St. James Church Dec. 14 and sing carols to the volunteers. The gifts will be distributed by Sussex Outreach Services.

Visitor management system in place

Willow Springs Learning Center is pleased to announce that it will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System beginning on Oct. 22. Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times, and the Raptor system will permit us to do that.

The Raptor system will better allow us to screen visitors, contractors and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff. Any time you or a family member is visiting our school building/grounds during school hours, you are required to check in at the school office for a visitor’s badge.

Upon entering Willow Springs during the school day, parents and visitors will be asked to present an ID such as a driver’s license, which can either be scanned or manually entered into the system. Once entry is approved, Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date and the purpose of his or her visit. A visitor’s badge will not be necessary for those who visit school simply to drop off an item in the office.

As always the safety of our students is our highest priority, and the Raptor visitor management system will better ensure a safe and secure environment at school. Thank you in advance for your understanding and your support in enhancing the school safety protocols in our district.
