STOPPING AT SCHOOL?

Please enter through door 1. You can press the bell to talk to the office, but you will be asked to wait in the entryway area between the 2 sets of doors. To minimize the amount of germs in the building we are limiting entry into the building to staff and students only. Lastly, don't forget to wear a mask!

On April 6, voters in the Wausau School District will have the opportunity to vote on 2 referendum questions. Question #1 would add 36 additional Pupil Services staff and Question #2 would make upgrades to ALL of our schools for NO tax increase.

Just a reminder that report cards are no longer printed and sent home. Parents can view their child's report card on their parent portal account. At the Elementary School level you will have access to view and print report cards, pay school fees, view payment history, and update phone numbers and address information when you sign up for Infinite Campus Parent Portal. At the middle school and high school level you will be able to do all the above and additionally you will be able to access class schedules, check assignment completion, and view student grades as the teacher enters them. Please reach out and call Erica Taylor at 715-261-0190 or email at etaylor@wausauschools.org if you need your activation code or help getting signed up for a parent portal account.

The Wausau School District has a New Inclement Weather Plan!

If school is closed for inclement weather, students are expected to log into SeeSaw at 8:30 and attend their google meets throughout the day. It is no longer a day off of school and therefore, no days will be added to the school calendar in June.

Brrrr..... It's getting cold outside

Be sure to come to school dressed for the cooler temperatures.
