To pick up your child in the car line, you must present your WBA issued pick-up tag. If you don't have it, you will need to go to the office and show your ID.
Anytime a scholar is being picked up via the office, he/she will NOT be released to anyone who cannot produce ID U to anyone who is not listed as a guarding or an emergency contact in Skyward. Please keep your child's contacts up to date in Skyward.
Although a parent is not prohibited from providing food for for children in the child’s classroom for his or her birthday, please be aware that children in the school may have severe allergies to certain food products. Therefore, it is imperative to discuss this with the child’s teacher prior to bringing any food in this circumstance. Also, it is WBA policy that any food items brought for birthday celebrations be individually wrapped/contained and will be sent home with students. Those food items will not be consumed at school.

Kinder scholars and any new scholars to the campus will be sorted into their assigned house during the first week of school. All returning scholars will continue in the house they have been part of. Scholars and staff are encouraged to wear their house color on the last instructional day of the week to show unity and house pride.
Scholars are awarded house points for showing good character and exemplifying our core expectations (see photo below). House point drawings for prizes are done weekly and the leading house (most house points accumulated) will be awarded each grading period.
