Here are some important updates as we start the new year:
  • Students must be in uniform every day. Please review the uniform/dress code policy and help us focus on academics by ensuring your student arrives to school in uniform.
  • Success starts with timeliness. Our students have accrued a total of 4,499 tardies. please have a conversation with your student about practicing the habit of timeliness and arrive to class on time and prepared to learn.
    • If your student is one that has excessive tardies (10 or more in the first semester), you will receive a letter before we return in January with a specific plan of action to encourage your student to arrive to class on time.
  • We are moving into the 21st century! Specific teachers/classes will begin to utilize WCSD email addresses and Office365 apps. Please review the guiding documents below. If you would like more information about WCSD email or would like your student to opt out of having a WCSD email address to communicate with teachers/staff, please click here (Spanish).
If you have any questions, please contact us. We hope you have a happy holiday and restful break. We are excited to welcome you back on January 9th.
