Notification of Annual Review and Evaluation Results
Dear Willow Park Elementary School Parents, Guardians, Teaching Staff, and Community Members,
The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the results of the 2022-2023 Willow Park Schoolwide Annual Review Meeting. This meeting was conducted with all teaching staff and administration on May 26, 2023 and is held annually.
During this meeting, we reviewed our schoolwide goals and the progress we made towards those goals through a review of student assessment, attendance, and behavior data. We closely examined our school’s data to determine ways in which we can better serve our students during the 2023-2024 school year. We looked at and discussed feedback from both Willow Park families and Willow Park staff gathered through the annual assessment of family engagement and staff surveys. Below is feedback provided by our Willow Park families.

Message from Nurse Jamie
National Immunization Awareness Week takes place during the last week of April, from April 23 until 30 each year. Vaccination has proven to be one of the most effective ways of keeping sickness at bay and boosting immunity. Thanks to immunization and vaccinology, the body is able to develop resistance to more than 20 diseases that are potentially fatal. Immunization also increases the longevity of life for people of all ages and prevents a huge number of deaths each year. Summer is a good time to get your child’s vaccinations prior to the start of the school year. Appointments can be made at your child’s doctor’s office, or 1 of 4 clinics in Fargo and West Fargo (Family Health Care, Cass Public Health, Sanford children’s, Essentia Children’s clinic). Please visit the WFPS Health Services page for information about vaccination requirements – link below.

Have a happy and healthy summer! Nurse Jaime
Bus Route Cancelations
Since the week of January 23, 2023, West Fargo Public Schools has been forced to cancel multiple bus routes each week. Due to the chronic bus driver shortage, WFPS will unfortunately need to continue cancelling routes each week for the foreseeable future. A schedule of all district bus routes was randomly generated to determine the order in which routes will be cancelled; click HERE to view the schedule.
The official determination of how many and which routes will be cancelled each week will be made and communicated to impacted families and schools no later than 5:00PM every Wednesday.
It is the district’s hope that the driver situation improves; efforts are being made to recruit regular route drivers as well as individuals (including existing coaching staff) interested in driving activity routes. If you or someone you know (including current staff members) is interested in driving a route before school, after school, or for activities, please contact our Director of Transportation, Brad Redmond, to discuss possibilities. There is no simple solution to this problem; it will take all of us to come up with creative solutions and minimize disruptions to our learners’ routines.
