Dear Wildlight Elementary Students and Parents,
As we begin a new school year, we welcome you to escort your child to class for the first few weeks of school. Beginning September 3rd, in order to ensure the safety of all of the students on campus, build responsibility in your child, and protect our limited instructional time, we are asking that if you choose to walk your child onto campus, that you walk them to the outside front entrance of the main gallery then allow them to walk to class from there on their own. We will no longer be allowing parents to sign in and walk the students down to the rooms. We will have several staff members throughout campus ready to assist your child in getting to class, if needed. As always, if you need to meet with your child’s teacher, you are welcome to schedule a conference after school by calling or emailing them directly.
The first day of school for students will be Monday, August 12th and we will be on a Regular Bell schedule. Students will be dismissed at 2:10. Please ensure your child knows how he/she will get home from school each day. Students will be allowed to use book bags at WES. Rolling type book bags may not be used as they cause a hazard on the sidewalks and do not fit well on buses.
Please remember that if you are checking your child out early, you need to do so before 1:40 pm on M, T, Th, F, and before 12:40 pm on Wednesdays. Students will not be checked out from class after that time and will be required to go through the car rider line or to the buses as normal. If you have a change in transportation, it also needs to be made before 1:40 pm and 12:40 pm, respectively, by calling the front office.
In addition, for the safety and security of all of our students, please adhere to our car rider line procedures by waiting in your car in line for your child. Unless there is an emergency, we will not be able to pull your child out of the gallery and dismiss them to you on the front walkway or in the front office.
A supply list can be found under Academics & Programs (by grade level) or on the Wildlight Facebook page.
I would like to invite each of you to the "Welcome Back to School/Meet Your Teacher Event," which is scheduled from 1:00-3:00 on Friday, August 9th. There will be no general meeting, so please proceed directly to your child's classroom and meet the teacher. Faculty and staff will be available to assist you if needed.
Thank you so much for your understanding! We are looking forward to a fantastic year!
Mr. Hodges and Mrs. Ray
