If you are someone who enjoys social media, please consider "liking" our WES and SME Facebook pages. I am trying hard to post often about the exciting and cool things that go on at our schools. It is also a great place to see reminders about school events.

Parking Pleas....

SME

At the end of the day, if you are coming into the school, PLEASE (!!!) park in the parking lot. Also, please pull up to pick up your students in a single file line...we are seeing a lot of safety concerns.

WES

Please avoid parking in the handicapped spots at WES at pick up unless you have a placard displayed! Thank you!

What's New for the 2018-2019 School Year


Updated handbook!

We will be focusing on consistency between the two schools. A copy of the handbook will be sent home, but you can also access it online.
