Wiggin Street Parent Update

Better Together


Happy Friday! Thank you for sharing your kids with us each day. Most of the spirit wear ordered is coming home today. If you ordered a red t-shirt that didn't come home, you should expect to receive an email from Rod Zolman tomorrow with plans to try and get them to you before Monday. Also, there was a technical problem which caused some "Rooted in Respect" shirts to be delayed. We are hoping that they will arrive by Monday. Since our All School Photo will be taken on Monday, please send your child in red if they do not have spirit wear. Sorry for the delay.

Our second grade learned how to be a Tick Buster this week. I'm sharing some of the tips, because I thought they would be helpful to all as a reminder. Lyme Disease is a great concern in our area, so please be safe.

Have a great weekend,

Christy Grandstaff

Morning Drop Off Safety Reminder

For those dropping off students in the morning, please do not get out of your vehicle. If your student needs assistance getting out of the vehicle, please pull off to the right side and walk them safely to the sidewalk.

Also, students are to walk in front of their car when exiting from the passenger side, so parents can watch for them. For this reason, please do not back up to go around a car. If you leave plenty of space between cars, you can go around if needed.

This is for the safety of all students, so that no one gets injured. Thank you!
