Wickliffe and Windermere elementary schools will be sharing the Wickliffe site during the 2020-2021 school year as the new Windermere building is constructed. Below is important information for Wickliffe families for this transitional year:
Wickliffe / Windermere School Site
Beginning with the 2020-2021 school year, Wickliffe students will attend school in the new Wickliffe building, which will have its front entrance along Wickliffe Road. For the 2020-2021 school year, Windermere students will move to the old Wickliffe building, which has its front entrance along Cimmaron Road.
Additional information regarding school dropoff and pickup will be shared with families and on this website ahead of the start of the 2020-2021 school year.
Wickliffe School Day
One of the primary challenges is maintaining a safe dropoff and pickup schedule with two schools on a relatively compact site. As we look to next school year, we have decided to stagger the start times for the two schools.
The student day at Wickliffe will run from 9:10 a.m. (tardy bell at 9:15) until 3:50 p.m. during the 2020-2021 school year. Wickliffe staff members will keep their current schedule, but their preparation and meeting time will move to the morning.
The student day at Windermere will run from 8:10 a.m. (tardy bell at 8:15) until 2:50 p.m. during the 2020-2021 school year.
Bus transportation will be provided to all Wickliffe and Windermere students who live more than 1.25 miles walking distance from the school site. Families will be able to register their students for bus transportation for the 2020-2021 school year in the spring of 2020.
In response to the schedule change for Wickliffe families, the UA Schools SACC program is planning to offer a morning care program for the 2020-2021 school year from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Afternoon care will be offered from 3:50 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (Please note that the morning care program will only be offered during the 2020-2021 school year.)
Information about tuition rates and the pre-registration process is available on our website at www.uaschools.org/wickliffesacc.aspx.
As we prepare for the 2020-2021 school year, we are closely looking at time and space on our site to plan for recess. We will be sharing more about our school day before the start of the school year.
