Attendance

As the the end of the school year draws near, absences begin to accumulate. Please make sure your Wolf is here everyday by 7:30 ready to learn if at all possible!

If not, please make sure to send a note as to the nature of the absence.

Thank you!

Dress Code Reminders

The weather is warming up here in Texas, and winter clothes are being stored away!

Please review these dress code guidelines as we get back into the warmer seasons!

Survey Time!

Each spring, Wylie ISD takes the time to survey parents, teachers, and staff to get a pulse on the climate. Research shows that a school’s climate is directly related to student achievement, so it is very important! If you have not already filled out a survey for your Whitt Wolf, please do so today!
