Principal's Message

Ms. Fernandez

Dear Wilcox Families,

     As we begin the second semester, I would like to let you know that through our efforts to improve the safety and education of our students, it has become necessary to make changes to our after-school dismissal procedures. Wilcox Elementary School will become a closed campus for after-school dismissal. The following changes will go into effect on Monday, February 3, 2020.

School Dismissal Gates #2, #15, Cafeteria Doors, #5, #6 and #13 will open at 2:45PM, only students will be allowed to dismiss the campus. Each Grade Level will dismiss from the following gates:

  • Gates #2 = K13 and K15
  • Gate #15 = K1, K2 and 12 
  • Cafeteria Doors= 1st Grade and 2nd Grade
  • Gate #5 = 3rd Grade
  • Gate #6 = 4th and 5th Grade
  • Gate #7 = Bus Riders
  • Older siblings at Wilcox Elementary will be able to pickup younger Wilcox siblings at the younger siblings’ assigned gates and dismiss from the younger siblings’ gates. 
  • Parents will be allowed to meet with teachers after-school when appointments have been scheduled. Please schedule appointments with teacher or the main office will relay messages to the teachers.
  •  Parents that have scheduled parent conferences/meetings will be allowed to enter through the main office at dismissal. Parents must sign-in at the main office and get a visitors’ badge before entering campus.
  • Registered parent volunteers must sign-in at the main office and get a visitor’s badge before entering campus.
  • If parents need to conduct after-school program (SSI) business, please call Mr. Michael Canales (SSI Director) at (626) 374-7338 for assistance.

While I know that change can be difficult, I believe these changes will lead to improved student safety and security. I want to thank you in advance for your cooperation and support. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have.

Sincerely,

Veronica Fernandez

Acting Principal
