Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Willis Hare Elementary!

    I am so excited to see everyone again… and some of you for the first time! Last year posed some unique challenges and ended too soon but we accepted those challenges with fortitude. This school year we will continue with that fortitude to build on our learning in this changing environment.

    This year our focus remains on providing the best educational opportunities for the students of Willis Hare Elementary School whether in-school or remotely. The faculty and staff will be here to assist students and parents as we work together to engage and encourage each other as we get back to normal. I will be maintaining communications with students and parents through the use of newsletters, emails, and phone calls. These communications will provide home-helping tips, school updates, and celebrations!

    Open communication will be a must for us this year as we begin the year using a home/school learning environment. Please feel free to reach out to the school for information or assistance – we can use various methods to work together (virtually, written, or on the phone).
