Wilson Creek ES Family Newsletter
August 12, 2022
Hello Wildcat families,
We have had a great start to the school year. Our kids are doing an awesome job learning and following the school rules and procedures, they are getting to know one another and their teachers, and are being kind and respectful. It's a joy to have them back!
Thank you parents for getting your children to school on time and for following the carpool procedures. Kids are hopping out quickly and the lines are moving fast. This helps us all start our day off well.
Tomorrow we have our Welcome Back Picnic here at the school. I hope to see many of you here making connections with other families and perhaps your child's teachers. See below for more information.
All the best,
New Check In/Out System
All late check ins and early check outs are considered unexcused unless you provide a note from a doctor's office.
School Counseling Referral Form
Children sometimes face difficulties in their lives and can use someone to talk to. The counselors see students for short-term individual counseling who are experiencing family or friendship difficulties, grief, academic concerns or any other issues they may be facing. Having a trusted adult at school is very important for students to feel safe. Students can self-refer to meet with me or teachers, parents, and administrators can request that I meet with individual students. If you would like to refer your child for short-term counseling (up to 6 weeks) with our school counselors, click the link below

If you need your student id number, please email Heidi Mueller at email@example.com.
Please be aware that all students will be active on 8/8/2022 so if you have tried to set up an account and had problems logging in, please try again Monday. If still unable to log-in, then email Heidi Mueller.
Also, it is imperative we have at least one (1) emergency contact in the event we cannot reach you. Please know it does not have to be a family member as a friend and/or neighbor information is fine. Please update your students record in Infinite Campus via a census update.
