September 2021

Happy September!

We've had a great start to our school year! It is so wonderful to have our students in the building! The students are doing such a wonderful job adjusting to a new school year and following health and safety guidelines.

Thank you for your continued support of Weaverville Elementary!

A note from BCS Communications

Hello, BCS Staff and Families:

Buncombe County Schools’ faculty and staff are excited about this brand new school year of in-person learning. We will be focused on addressing any educational challenges our students may have faced due to COVID-19 disruptions and also work to accelerate their learning this year. The pandemic has shown us that change is the only constant we’ve faced. We will continue to monitor the health situation in our schools and across our county and make any safety modifications necessary to ensure we can maintain a healthy, in-person learning environment.

Linked on our revised Return To Learn website are some helpful links to information regarding safety protocols and expectations in our buildings as well as specific COVID protocols from Buncombe County Health and Human Services.

Looking for the latest COVID data for your school?
Our notification protocols currently include our school administrators communicating directly with families and staff regarding COVID-19 cases associated with a school building or school activity. Additionally, school staff will collaborate with school nurses and county case investigators to send specific guidance to any staff or students identified as close contacts within the school setting.

Soon, each school will also post on their website a total of new lab-confirmed COVID cases associated with the school that week. Tentatively beginning Thursday, Sept. 9, new COVID cases of staff/students will be posted on each school website.

The WvES COVID cases will be updated on our school website by 11 AM each Thursday morning. This number will track the number of lab confirmed COVID cases from Wednesday until the following Wednesday. The first numbers will represent Wednesday, September 1 to Wednesday, September 8th.

Safety Reminders

Thank you all for working so diligently to follow our campus safety procedures. Our car rider line in the morning is flowing smoothly and the afternoon car line is ALMOST finished at 2:45 which is our goal. We are having to start a little later with the afternoon car line because we have to ensure that students are seated properly and spaced correctly in the gym before we begin. We appreciate your patience!

Thank you to everyone for being patience when we had a disabled car in the line on Friday and thank you to another parent for helping to jump the car off! The Weaverville Community is strong!

Here are some general safety reminders:

  • Please do not pass in the car rider line.
  • Cars should enter and exit the car pickup circle using Yost Street.
  • Any family that comes to the gym door with the pickup tag must live within walking distance of the school and be walking home. Everyone else must use the car rider line.
  • If your child gets out on the driver's side of the car, they should walk in front of your car so you can ensure they make it to the sidewalk safely before you proceed.

So far this year we have held our monthly fire drill, had early morning bus safety drills and held our perimeter and full lockdown drill. In the next few weeks we will also complete a bomb drill (will look like a fire drill to students) and practice exiting our campus a different way for our remote evacuation drill.

Fun Run Character Theme is SPORTS CITY NOW!

Our character theme is SPORTS CITY NOW! It’s a fitness theme all about inspiring students to be active and activate their character. Students will travel the country learning how to live and play with more character from REAL kid-athletes.


Due to low ratings, SportsCity Now, a sports news show run entirely by kids, is in jeopardy of being shut down. The two lead anchors must fight to save the show by pivoting to a new direction—inspiring documentaries featuring real kid athletes with character. With the help of your students and a magical news desk, they might just be able to pull it off.

Our dynamic, documentary-style videos will introduce your students to REAL kid-athletes with REAL character. In the process, your students will learn about Wisdom, Care, Courage, Grit, and Celebration.
