Last year marked the first group of students that attended Laura Ingalls Wilder Elementary from kindergarten through fifth grade. Pictured is Connor Troutman with his sister Audrey, mom Jennifer, and dad Brandon. Brandon was kind enough to donate his time and talents to painting the PBIS murals for Wilder. They are just one of the terrific families that have become part of the Wilder community.

Students will be marked tardy if they are not in the classroom by 8:00 in the morning. When your child will be absent please call the school at 961-9540 ext. 0 by 8:00 in the morning.
Parking/Drop Off/Pick Up
As with any school year we have a number of students that walk or that get dropped off and picked up after school. We will dismiss these students approximately 3:05pm. They will dismiss out the main doors. If you are picking your child up in a vehicle, please do not leave your car unattended in the fire lane. If you need to park please use the diagonal parking or U Street to the east.
- Supervision will begin at 7:40 for those students walking or being dropped off for school. Student’s not eating breakfast will be sent to their activity area/or classroom at 7:50 a.m.
- Breakfast will be served from 7:30-7:50 each day. The students need to be in their homerooms by 7:50.
There will be no double-stacking of cars in the drive. We will have a drive and drop zone between orange cones and no parking will be allowed in that area.
The bus entrance/exit to the west in the circle drive is closed to cars from 7:20-8:15 and 2:30-3:15 daily. Indianola Childcare parents may drop off and pick up on that side of the building outside of those times.
You are highly encouraged to have your student ride the bus, if possible. Expect up to a 5-10 minute pick-up wait time. Please be courteous, as we all are trying to help students arrive and depart safely.
All students arriving to school after 7:55 must be signed in by the parent in the office.
We will post a crossing guard at Euclid and U Street only. They will be there before school (7:35 – 7:50) and after school (3:00 – 3:15).
