Happy 1st Day of School Mustangs! Thank you for your patience as we navigated through drop off this morning. Below you will find a few reminders that I hope you find helpful: WMS doors will open for students each day @ 7:50 am 5th & 6th Gr. enter WMS at the back entrance (near the playground) 5th & 6th grade parents if you drop off and pick up, I would suggest doing so in the back of WMS. 7th & 8th Gr. Will enter at the Gym doors each morning. I would suggest dropping off and picking up in the front of WMS. If you have students in multiple grade level's, of course pick the drop off/pick up location that works best for you. Please help us with the following: 1) Do not drop off your child in the parking lot for their safety, only along the sidewalk. 2) During drop off and pick up, please pull forward as far as you can along the sidewalk to allow more parents to drop off and pick up at one time and speed up our drop off/pick up times. Lastly, today is a 1/2 day and students will be dismissed at 11:15 today. Thank you!
Mustangs, We are so excited that the 2021-22 school year is almost here! WMS Doors will be unlocked at 7:50 each morning for students that arrive early. At 8:00, students will report to their 1st hour class and the school day begins at 8:10. 7th & 8th Grade students will enter through the Gym Doors each morning. *7th & 8th Grade parents, I would suggest dropping off & picking up your child each day in front of WMS. 5th & 6th Grade students will enter through the back entrance of WMS. This is near the playground. *5th & 6th Grade parents, I would suggest dropping off and picking your child each day in the back of WMS. We will have staff outside to assist students and make sure they enter through the correct doors and help out as needed. Please pull forward along the sidewalk as far as you can in the front and back of WMS to help us load and unload as many cars at one time as possible. *5th & 6th Gr. students will need to be masked while inside WMS. *It is recommended that 7th & 8th Gr. students have a mask in their possession in case it is needed. Examples of when a mask may be needed for 7th & 8th Gr. Students: 1) If they need to see the nurse. 2) If they go to the school office or counselor's office. 3) If they have an advanced class where 6th gr. students are attending. Remember that Thursday is a half day for students and school will end at 11:15. A grab and go lunch will be provided for any student that would like to take one home.
