The Early Bird program is using SchoolPay for all online payments. If you have an existing account, you simply add your student.  If you do not have an account, you will need to create an account.  You will need your students ID number to process payments. PLEASE NOTE: if you believe that you have overpaid/paid twice or are needing a refund, please email Erica Arnaud earnaud@willisisd.org with the request and include the child(ren)'s name and campus in your email.

    The EARLY BIRD PROGRAM is a before-school program provided on all six elementary school campuses and Roark Early Education Center to assist parents who may need to drop students off earlier than the school start time.
