Enjoy the Break

We look forward to the day when all of our RedHawks are back in our building. This week we (re)started with 1027 students returning to full-week in-person learning and 379 remote students. There were definitely some adjustments to be made for those in the building. As we have done throughout past years, we take a look at where changes needed to be made and adjust our systems accordingly. While the hallways feel more crowded, our outdoor passing periods have eased the crowd. Our cafeteria has more students, but we offer outdoor and hallway seating. Our morning drop-off has more cars, so we have adjusted how we get cars into and out of the lot.

Overall, our kids have been AMAZING this year- both remote and hybrid students. While we have faced challenges, our kids have done their best to rise to the challenge. And our parents have been highly supportive of their students and our work here at WMS. After this week, we have 35 days of school left. While this year has certainly felt long, parts of it have flown by. We will blink and the year will be over.

Thank you to all of our parents who have helped make morning drop-off better for our students. Friday we will take another look at drop-off and see if there are any other changes that need to be made. For now, the key phrase is, "Please pull up to the furthest cone." By doing that, we can get more kids into the building safely and quickly. I appreciate your help in making morning drop-off more effective.

Enjoy your weekend!

8th Grade End-of-the-Year Celebration:

We have had some parents inquire if we are going to have an 8th-grade celebration. Absolutely! We are working with our PTO, along with our partners at TMS, to make sure we have an end-of-the-year celebration for our 8th graders. Check back in future editions of the Friday Forecast for more details. We will have further information available closer to the end of the school year.

5 Reminders for After School Pick Up

Just a reminder to parents...

  1. You need to pick up kids at the Norris Center parking lot after school, not off the Dunham Road driveway, Kirk Rd, or Fox Chase Blvd roadways.

  2. Go slowly and be aware of all students and cars in the lots, crossing the roadways.

  3. You need to pull into a parking space in the Norris lot.

  4. Please follow all posted signs and arrows.

  5. Parents may NOT pick-up students from our back parking lot without permission from Mr. Loversky (ex. due to injury). They will receive a pass for this purpose. We have too many smaller buses trying to pick up students from this area.


Thank you,

Tim


Revised Calendar 2021-2022; Approved Calendar 2022-2023

The Board of Education revised the District 2021-2022 calendar and approved the 2022-2023 calendar at Monday night's meeting. The changes in the calendar for next year are that the institute day that was previously scheduled for February 25 is now scheduled for March 4 and the former half-day parent conference in the spring for PreK-5 is now a regular day of school. The institute day was moved by the county since the D303 calendar was first adopted. Here is a link to those calendars.
