A Message from the Principal
Make ups for school pictures will be during lunch on 10/21/2013.
We will make sure that students who are getting pictures taken will
also have time to eat their lunch.
I have had many parents and neighbors talk with me about the safety of
students during drop off and pick up times. Student are getting
out of cars and crossing the street. The double parking causes
other cars to try and drive around a car which can also be
hazardous. I consulted with Community Service of the Berkeley
Police Dept. The officer told me that beginning Monday, October
21, 2013, there will be traffic officers assigned to Willard Middle
School during drop off and pick up times. This will be
sporadic. Please adhere to the driving rules to avoid warnings or
Additionally, I would recommend dropping your daughter or son off on
Telegraph Avenue. The gate that leads into the garden will be
open at 8:00am. There is a white zone right right in front of the
bus zone on Telegraph. This could be an ideal place for both drop
off and pick up. We will open the gate at the end of the day, but
we will lock it while school is in session to insure campus
I hope that opening the gate on Telegraph will help ease the flow of
traffic on Stuart.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation. I hope that these
steps will improve the safety of students and families at Willard.
Enjoy your weekend and thank you for sending your sons and daughters to
school ready to learn.
