Email addresses for all of the teachers and staff can be found on our website. Your child’s planner can also be used to communicate directly with your child’s teachers.When is Winter Break/Spring Break/Report Cards, etc?The student calendars are all found on our website and the Lake County Public Schools website, https://www.lake.k12.fl.usWhere do I park when I come to the school?Visitor Parking spots are located in the front parking lot on the south side. The numbered spots are reserved for teachers and staff.What happens if my child gets sick at school?We do not have a nurse on staff at Windy Hill, nor do we have a clinic.

We will then call them to the office.My child is going to a friend’s house after school. Can he/she ride on the friend’s bus?
No, Lake County Transportation requires that students only ride their assigned busses.Why can’t I check my student out during the last 40 minutes of the school day?
Our busses begin lining up in the front of the school at that time. Walking between busses to the parking area is extremely dangerous.Why doesn’t my student bring home printed announcements about the happenings at school like they did in elementary school?
By the time students reach middle school, they are expected to be more responsible for relaying important information home.

Our marquis in front of the school also provides important dates as they come up during the year.
