Health News

The health of our students is a TOP priority!

Please contact Michelle DeVito, WFS School Nurse for the following reasons:


1. Your child is considered a close contact of a COVID+ individual.

2. Your child are awaiting COVID test results.

3. Your child has tested positive for COVID.

4. Your child is experiencing symptoms of illness.

5. Any health related concerns or questions that impact the school day.


***If your child is feeling ill or exhibiting any signs of illness, we ask that you keep them home. Keeping all of our students and staff members healthy is very important to us.***


Ms. DeVito and our health assistants will assist you in knowing what steps can be taken next to guarantee the health of your child and others.


If a student must quarantine, it is considered an excused absence and they will continue to receive teacher support until the quarantine period has ended.

Reminders...

School Picture Time!

Information has been sent with each child regarding school pictures on:

Friday, October 15th!

"Wear it" WFS Wednesday!

Wear your best WFS gear (or Blue) every Wednesday for "Wear it WFS Wednesday!"

Water Bottles

We encourage all students to bring extra water bottles to school. At this time, we are not utilizing our communal water fountains so bringing extra water bottles to school help make our students comfortable through snack time, lunch, recess, and physical education. Water bottles are not provided by the school. Thank you!

School Lunch

This year, all students are entitled to a free school lunch. A school lunch menu is available on our school and District website. Please note the following information:


1. Each student must receive a full lunch. Choosing only certain items is not permitted.


2. Only 1 lunch is served to each child.


3. If your child has a food allergy, we encourage you to carefully review the Sodexo online menu. If you have any questions regarding the items and/or ingredients please contact Sodexo before allowing your child to receive the lunch. We are currently NOT utilizing the PIN system which previously has alerted the Sodexo workers of individual student allergies.


It has been brought to our attention that there are times when the school lunch menu changes. Unfortunately, these changes are often due to supply and/ or delivery issues. We ask that you send your child to school with an extra healthy snack in the event they do not like or want to eat the new item(s) that may appear on the menu.


If you have any concerns or questions related to our school lunches, please contact Sodexo Food Services. Sodexo Food Director, Rocio Johnson can be reached at 732.462. 8400 x8870 or X8871
