Dismissal Help

Akin Families,

During our afternoon dismissal we ask that you do not park along the West side of the campus on Lanwood Drive. We always do our best to move through our dismissal process as quickly as possible, but some of our buses are having a difficult time exiting our back parking lot due to traffic on Lanwood. If we can leave both lanes open, we feel like it will be helpful. Thank you for your understanding.

School Board Recognition Month

Did you know January is School Board Recognition Month? Our Wylie ISD Board of Trustees is comprised of seven elected officials— Board President Stacie Smith, Board Vice President Matt Atkins, Board Secretary Kylie Reising, Board Member Dr. Jacob Day, Board Member Mitch Herzog, Board Member Heather Leggett, and Board Member Bill Howard—who are committed and dedicated to the success and well-being of students and staff.

Throughout the rest of the month, we will celebrate and recognize this special group for all that they do for our district and how they help us rise above! Thank you, Wylie ISD Board of Trustees!
