End of the Day Plan Changes

Please be sure to always include the office staff when emailing teaches regarding changes in the end of school plan for your child! In the event you need to pick your student up prior to dismissal, we ask that you do so before 3:40 p.m. Emailing teachers and office staff regarding an early dismissal is very helpful to all.

Safety Drills

We are committed to providing a safe, caring, and supportive environment for all of our students, and we continue to follow all WLCSD safety protocols, of which our students are active participants. To enhance our emergency preparedness, we conduct safety drills and we regularly review our practices and procedures. Teachers spend time during class meetings reviewing and practicing the various drills. Please let your classroom teacher know if your student expresses worry or concern about any of the safety drills. Over the course of the school year we will practice the following types of safety drills:
  1. Fire Drill: Students and staff vacate the building in a safe and orderly manner using the exit that is closest to their location at the time of the drill. The actual alarm is very loud and the alarm unit includes a strobe light. Once outside, teachers account for all students. We conducted our first drill on Tuesday, September 14th.

  2. Alert/Tornado Drill: Students and staff move to a location that has been determined to be safe, away from window areas. Students kneel on the floor, bending over covering their head. Once in position, teachers account for all students. In some cases, students and staff take shelter in their own classroom while others have a different designated location. There is a pre-recorded message played over the PA system that instructions everyone to take shelter. We conducted our first alert drill on Wednesday, September 15th.

  3. Shelter in Place: The procedure is simple, staff and students remain in their classrooms to allow for clear hallways and classroom learning continues as usual. We do use this procedure throughout the year to ensure proper medical attention/support can be given if a student or staff member is in need. There is a pre-recorded message played over the PA that instructions everyone to “Shelter in Place”. We will conduct a Shelter in Place drill during the week of September 20th.

COVID Information

If a member of your household tests positive for COVID we strongly recommend a self-quarantine from last date of close contact, however WLCSD is not currently issuing quarantines. Thank you for taking the necessary steps to help ensure the health and safety of our entire learning community.

If a student tests positive for COVID, they will be isolated for a minimum of 10 calendar days based on the recommendations from the OCHD. All families in that classroom will receive a letter regarding the positive case. The letter also reminds recipients to monitor their child's health closely and if he/she begins experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, stay home, consult your medical provider and get tested for COVID-19.

Daily Health Checks

We continue to urge all families to check your child's health daily and make decisions that will keep our community healthy and safe. Please check for the following symptoms:

  • Fever/Chills
  • Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Headache Sore throat
  • Congestion
  • Runny Nose
  • Nausea or Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

If your child has any of these symptoms, please err on the side of caution and keep them home until their symptoms subside. We appreciate your partnership as we continue to work together to keep our community healthy and safe! Health and Safe!

  • Masks are required in all of our schools and facilities.
  • Masks are required on our buses.

Medication at School

We realize there are times when our students will need medication administered at school. In order for school personnel to administer medication to a student, the school district’s “Authorization to Administer Medication” form must be completed and on file in the school office. (This form must be completed yearly) You will find the form linked below. All medication (both prescription and over-the-counter) must be in the original containers. Forms and medication can be dropped off at our main office.
