    Lunch Program 
     
    Woodland utilizes the services of Piccadilly Restaurants to provide our students with daily lunch options. Parents will be given the opportunity in July to order a 5 pack, 20 pack, semester, or yearly lunch plan. Students place lunch orders each day in homeroom. Daily lunch options include a sandwich or hot lunch, drink, and two sides. Questions about the lunch program can be directed to lunch@woodlandschool.org. Students in the Little Woodland class bring their own lunches and do not purchase a lunch at school.

    Parent Meetings

    Each class will hold a parent meeting at the start of the year. More information can be found online on the school calendar.


    Records
    Each child should have an updated shot record and birth certificate on file with the school before the first day of school. Contact nurse@woodlandschool.org with any questions.

The first payment for all payment plans is due no later than July 15th. For your convenience, extended payment plans begin as early as June 1st.  Woodland strongly recommends an ACH bank draft for all monthly payment options in order to avoid late fees and other delays in payment processing.
