Transportation

Parents please do not drop your child off after 9:00 AM in the morning without coming in to sign them in. We will be contacting parents to remind you to sign them in, if this occurs. Thank you for your cooperation.


Car riders- please make sure that you do not pass cars in the car rider line, unless you are going to park in the lot. Please use caution. This can be dangerous for students and parents who are loading and unloading students. We will not have a staff person standing in the street to direct cars. They are outside to support students. Parents please be careful.

Car riders please adhere to the pedestrians crossing in the cross walk.

Parents or someone listed on the emergency cards of Kindergartners must be at the bus stop each day to pick up their students. We are having many Kinders come back each day because no one is at the bus stop.

Please feel free to download the My Bus app so that you can know where your child’s bus is at all times. You can find this app on our website. Of course, you can also contact transportation with your concerns at 571-402-3912.

Cafeteria News

Please make sure that your child has enough funds on their lunch accounts for lunch each week. Remember you have to complete a new lunch application each year. They are located online at pwcs.edu or you can get one from the office. You can send in a payment with your child in a sealed envelope that is sent directly to the lunchroom each day or pay online at www.myschoolbucks.com. Please review the new regulation Payment for Charged Food Purchases regulation 460-1, in regards to school lunches on the PWCS website or by scanning the QR code.


More information on lunch menus and payment options can be found at http://pwcsnutrition.com/. Just a reminder that any student who owes $100

on a lunch bill will be given an alternative lunch according to the regulation. The intent of the new regulation 460-1 is to establish a division-wide process to handle situations when students have unpaid meal charges and delinquent account debt.

NEW ATTENDANCE POLICY

Parents new this year is regulation 724-1 Attendance Monitoring and Truancy Intervention. No longer will preapproved absences be excused unless under extraordinary circumstances. Family trips should be scheduled during school holidays and over summer break. Absences for family trips will not be excused unless accompanied by extraordinary circumstances and in no case for any period exceeding five school days without the approval of the Office of Student Services. A determination of whether extraordinary circumstances exist lies in the discretion of the principal, in collaboration with the Office of Student Services. If your child has over 5 days of unexcused absences, a referral will be sent to the Attendance officer for compliance with the compulsory education laws. and delinquent account debt.

SCHOOL CLOSINGS

Parents please make sure that you have your emergency contact information updated. In case of an early dismissal due to weather we will be contacting those people on the emergency cards. Please sign up for the PWCS App to find out the latest about school closures and delays. Remember if there is a Code Green or Red students stay in the bed. There is no school. For a two hour delay we will open at 10:50am. PWCS will post their closures on the PWCS website and all news channels.

TRANSFER REQUEST FOR 2018-19

The transfer window for the 2018-2019 school year is upon us. The window is from January 2, 2018 to April 30, 2018 for students in grades 1-8.

We will consider transfers for the following reasons: family relocation, to complete the school year, for designated site programs, child care, SACC, and provisions for PWCS employees. Remember, a transfer must be completed each year a student is not attending their base school. We will be sending out a letter, Transfer Request Form, and Child Care Verification Form to each student that currently attends Wilson on a transfer during the first week in January. Any transfer received after the April 30, 2018 deadline will be denied and an appeal will need to be made directly to student services.
