Drop off & Parking | If you are dropping off students to Willow Park School, please do so at the front of the building on Richmond Road and not in the parking lot. Students can use the front main doors and check in at our office. We do not have volunteer parking and we are asking our volunteers and or parents to park in the one hour zone out front (heavily monitored) or on the South side of the school beside the fences by the goal posts (From Richmond heading North turn Right on 25th Street SW– watch parking signs or continue and turn Left on 30th Ave SW – watch parking signs).
Magazine Fundraiser | Our Magazine Fundraiser was a huge success! Over $12,000 was raised for Willow Park School! Thank you students and parents for your full support and thank you to our Parent Council members for volunteering to help with this event.
