Willow Charter Academy offers bus transportation to eligible students through DS Bus South. To apply for busing, log in to the Parent Portal and fill out the bus application located in the forms section.

Parents are expected to provide the means for their children to get to and from school if they do not qualify for busing.

Free busing is available to eligible Willow students. Eligibility is based on the state of Louisiana requirement that families live within the Lafayette parish boundaries.

If you are in need of busing you should apply immediately. The bus application is available to submit online via the Forms section of the Parent Portal. You can also print an application and bring it to the front office.

Families interested in receiving bus service text alerts sent to their phone can sign up here.

Drop-off and Pick-up

Every school day begins and ends in our parking lot.

Drop-off and pick-up times can be hectic. But if we all work together, it can be a quick and efficient experience. If you would like to speak with one of the teachers, please pull into a parking space, stop into the office, and wait until after dismissal. Also, please remember to:

  • Drive slowly and be aware — precious children are everywhere.
  • Drop children off between 7:30 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.
  • Enter from the NE Evangeline Thruway entrance only.
  • Be patient with fellow drivers.
  • Stay off your cell phone.
