Wiley News


  • Second Semester - We kick off the second semester of the 20/21 school year on Wednesday, January 20th. At this point, we're anticipating about 70% of our students to return to campus for face-to-face learning. However, if you've been following local Board of Education coverage, you probably know that there are a few factors still being considered and we're not 100% certain that the Plan A (everyone face-to-face all the time, except VA) will be the plan that is executed on Wednesday, Jan 20. Please stay tuned as we prepare for various scenarios! Next Board of Ed meeting is Thursday evening.
  • Tentatively, Virtual Academy families, please note that we'll host a materials pick-up on Friday, January 22nd from 9:30am - 3:30pm to allow you to get 3rd Quarter supplies for your student.

News from our Wiley PTA

Mellow Mushroom Spirit Night TOMORROW 1/12

Join us for a Spirit Night (and Spirit Lunch!) at the Peace Street Mellow Mushroom on Tuesday, January 12. We will receive a portion of the proceeds when you mention Wiley PTA when ordering. If you order online, you can tell them it’s for Wiley when you pick it up. We won’t get credit if you use Door Dash, etc, you need to order directly! Thank you for your support!


Cultural Arts: This Friday, students will attend a cultural arts event during their language and elective block. We are so lucky to have storyteller Donna Washington join us. Students will use the code wileyPTA to access the meet at the following times: 4/5: 10:40 AM 2/3: 12:50 PM K/1: 2:10 PM


Help Needed! We need help setting up Spirit Nights for the rest of the year. It’s about an hour per month commitment, and it can be done at any hour of the day. Please email president@wileypta.org if you can help!

The school will arrange the bricks along the main entrance for all to see and admire.The bricks will honor Wiley’s past, and provide for its future; proceeds will help support the Wiley Elementary Foundation, which is committed to providing resources to help fund positions crucial to sustaining Wiley’s award-winning International Studies Magnet program.

  • Segundo semestre: comenzamos el segundo semestre del año escolar 20/21 el miércoles 20 de enero. En este punto, anticipamos que aproximadamente el 70% de nuestros estudiantes regresarán al campus para el aprendizaje cara a cara. Sin embargo, si ha estado siguiendo la cobertura de la Junta de Educación local, probablemente sepa que todavía se están considerando algunos factores y no estamos exactamente 100% seguros de que el Plan A (todos cara a cara todo el tiempo, excepto VA) será el plan que se ejecutará el miércoles 20 de enero. ¡Estén atentos mientras nos preparamos para varios escenarios! La próxima reunión de la Junta de Educación es el jueves por la noche.
  • Tentativamente, familias de la Academia Virtual, tengan en cuenta que organizaremos una recogida de materiales el viernes 22 de enero de 9:30 a. M. A 3:30 p. M. Para que puedan obtener útiles del tercer trimestre para su estudiante.
