Willcox Elementary School (WES) is located in Willcox, Arizona, in the southeast corner of the state, and we are part of the greater Willcox Unified School District.

We have developed this website to keep our teachers, students, parents, and community informed about everything going on at WES. Please take time to browse the site and learn more about all WES has to offer. You will find that we are a special school with a great staff and students.

A Message from our Principal

Dear WES Families,

Happy 2021! As the new year arrives we continue to operate under challenging circumstances. We are grateful for your support as we work to provide a successful learning experience for our students. 

Please note that our plans may change in response to COVID-19 conditions in our community and direction and guidance from state and local government.

We will return to learning on Monday, January 4, 2021. Our first week of school we will be using distance learning. Teachers are preparing instructional materials that will be available in the school office beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, January 4. Teachers will be available during school hours if you need any assistance. A daily morning meeting will take place via Zoom. Look for information from your child’s teacher on Class Dojo. If you do not have a Class Dojo account, please contact the school office so we can assist.

Starting on Monday, January 11, we will resume our hybrid schedule for two weeks. We will divide students into two groups. Students with last names beginning with A–L (group A) will attend school on Mondays and Wednesdays, and students with last names beginning with M–Z (group B) will attend school on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Families with students who have different last names will be placed in the same group. If you previously made arrangements for your child to attend on a different schedule, you may follow that same schedule now. This schedule will be in effect from January 11 through January 21.

We hope to return to an on-campus, in-person schedule for all students on Monday, January 25. We will monitor conditions in our community and update you if those plans change.

For more information or with any questions, please contact the WES office at 384-8603.
