School Starts at 8:00 Each Morning
Students not with their teacher at 8:00 sharp will be considered tardy. This affects perfect attendance and tardies can not be made up. Please make sure students are here everyday and on time. Grades 1-5 students enter through the back gates unless they are going to eat breakfast in the cafeteria. The gate closes at 8:01. Our attendance goal is 98% this year.

Healthy Breakfast
Healthy Breakfast
Do you want to avoid the traffic at the start of the school day and make sure your child has a healthy start to the day? Send them to breakfast as early as 7:30 a.m. Students can eat breakfast and then they walk through the quad back to their lines. Breakfast is served from 7:30 to 7:50 each day. The doors close at 7:50 so that students may finish before the bell rings. Please make sure to arrive on time. It's a win, win for everybody!
Backpack Checks
Backpack Checks
Please check your student's backpack on a regular basis. We try to send school-wide notices home on Wednesdays. At least a weekly check every Wednesday would be helpful to keep you informed and your student's backpack lighter...
Parking Lot CLosure
Parking Lot CLosure
The parking lot will be closed during drop off and dismissal times. Supervisors will allow staff and handicapped placard holders to park during those times. Parents and guardians who drive students to school should park on neighboring streets and walk their students onto campus. The decision was voted on by parents, teachers and staff as part of our efforts to create a safer environment for our students. Thank you for looking out for our students' safety.
Be water friendly!
Be water friendly!
Williams Elementary is helping conserve water. Please enjoy the drought tolerant plants that were planted in front of our school and at the office entrance to help cut down on water usage. Automatic turn on/shut off systems in our bathrooms have also been installed so that no water is wasted. What can you do to help conserve water in California!?

Safety First
Safety First
Please follow the directions of the supervisor(s) guiding traffic and avoid unsafe behaviors. Due to the limited number of parking spaces, please do not park in the front lot during drop-off times as the spaces are needed for school employees. The lot behind kinder is for STAFF USE ONLY. Street parking is available on Anchorage, Bard, and neighboring streets. Please follow all parking and safety regulations. Do not allow your students to cross through or in front of traffic except at crosswalks either on or off campus. The red curb is a no parking area. The white zone at the front of the school and the turn around area at the side are for immediate pick-up and drop-off only. Drivers need to stay in their vehicles for safety and to avoid congestion. Please consider the safety of the students over adult convenience while driving on or around our campus.
