Welcome Back!!!

We hope that all of our families had a restful break filled with family time and special memories! We are glad you're back and we are ready to make this an awesome semester where our wolves continue to stretch, and grow, and learn! This week the weather was cold and wet and and we had to get back into the school routine! Below are a few updates to remember as we move into this semester!

Parent Updates

Recess

If the temperature is 40° with a wind chill factor of 32°, we will be going outside for recess. Please ensure your student is dressed appropriately.

Tardies

Every Whitt student is expected to arrive to school on time as regular and punctual attendance is an important factor in school success. It is the responsibility of both the school and parent to encourage students to establish good attendance practices. Each day classroom instruction will begin when school starts. The official start time for elementary schools in WISD is 7:30 am. Students who are not in the building at 7:30 will be considered tardy. We will notify you of tardies your child receives by placing a tardy slip in your child’s communication folder or planner. Tardy slips should be signed and returned to the teacher. After tardies begin accumulating, an automated letter is generated at 4 tardies, and every 3 tardies afterwards. Once a student accumulates 12 tardies their attendance record will be filed with the court. We had a great first semester, and we appreciate your efforts to continue getting your students to school on time!
