WLPS will be closed on Friday, November 11 in observance of Veterans Day.

We are so thankful for all our WLPS families (parents, children, grandparents, and other involved extended family members).  We wish all of you a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!  We hope you will enjoy this special family time to gather and give thanks.  Our school will be closed the week of November 21.

WLPS will collect non-perishable food for Arlington Community Services during our “Can You Care” food drive.  We will have a bin by the front door for collections before Thanksgiving and again for the Christmas holidays.

The Picnic PALs enrichment activities will center around the fun book “Little Acorn” by Melanie Joyce.

In case of severe weather such as a hurricane or tropical storm, the school will follow closures as dictated by JU and Duval County Public Schools. Watch your local news for announcements.

When planning your holiday gift giving, please remember our Gift Card Fundraiser.  We sell gift cards through the RaiseRight program (formerly ShopWithScrip).  Browse retailers available at 

We have updated our Amazon wish list! You can access the list at
