The Reynolds Report

Hello First Street Families!


We had a blast this week on our Whale Tales field trip! Our students learned all about water safety, not just in pools, but in lakes and rivers as well. Ask your child what their favorite part of the trip was!


With only five more days left in the school year, please read through the following information to help us end the school year strong:


Early Release Days:


Our last five days of school will all be early release days. Please remember that your student will dismiss at 1:40 pm on each of these days.


Report Cards:


Report cards will be coming home next week. If your student has outstanding fees or missing library books, their report card will be held in the office. If your student doesn’t bring you a report card next week, please first check their backpack, and then come by our office to return books or pay fees so that we can release their report card to you.


Lost and Found:


Our lost and found carts are overflowing! Be sure to swing by and look through the lost and found for your child's items before the last day of school. Any items left after the last day of school will be donated to Goodwill.


Emergency Card Updates:


Please remember to log into your PowerSchool Parent Portal Account to complete the Emergency Contact Update. All families are required to complete this process on an annual basis. For those that recently registered a new student to WPUSD, you do not need to complete this process, as it was done during the new student registration process. If you have not set up a Parent Portal account, you should have received an email from the District with detailed instructions on how to set up your account. If you have any questions, please contact our office.

Thank you, families, for coming out to see our First Street School music performances at Open House! Fourth and fifth grade ukulele students were fantastic! FSS Choir sounded great!

Online Roadrunner Store Open for Business!

WHAT IS THE ROADRUNNER STORE?


The Roadrunner Store is the place where kids can "shop" for items to purchase with the BEEP cards they earn here at FSS for Being Safe, Exercising Responsibility, Engaging in Learning, & Practicing Kindness!


Typically, the kids would be able to walk through our Roadrunner Store once a month and shop in person. For COVID safety reasons, we have set up a virtual on-line store. The items currently for sale are shown below. To place an order, kids simply need to print the order form attached below, mark the item(s) they are choosing, and turn their form into their teacher or the school office. The next turn in day of this school year will be Friday, January 19th! Deliveries will come the following school week!

Student Accident Insurance (Digital Version)

The safety of our students is one of our most important concerns and we take appropriate steps to protect your child from injuries. Even so, accidents can and do happen during school events and resulting medical treatment (ambulance transport, surgery, hospitalization, etc.) can be very expensive. Please know that the District does not assume responsibility for these costs. However, as a service to you and your child, your school has joined with thousands of others by offering you access to a low cost, voluntary purchase student accident/health insurance program. The program is arranged and administered by Myers-Stevens and Toohey & Co., Inc., a firm that has specialized in such coverages for 40 years. Details and an enrollment form are in the link and accompanying brochure here. Please read it here carefully.


If you are interested in signing up for "Student Accident Insurance" please click on the application link here.
