Track 1 families will receive their child's report card no later than May 28. Families on Track 2, 3, and 4 will receive their report card no later than June 4. Report cards will be provided to families via email. If you do not have an email address, we will make report cards available for pick up (see below). Or, the report card can be mailed to your home address.


Report Cards & Students on Track 1

Track 1 students completed the 3rd grading period prior to school closure. Your child will have a numerical grade recorded for quarter 3. State guidelines stipulate that elementary school students will not receive a numerical grade for 4th quarter. Students will receive year end feedback from their teacher regarding their strengths and areas that may need improvement.

In some cases, parents may have items they would like to return to the school. Devices, such as hot spots or Chromebooks will only be collected if a student is not returning to a WCPSS school next year. Library books will only be collected if a student is not attending a WCPSS school next year. Rising 6th graders attending a WCPSS school next year will return library books and devices checked out to their middle school. The district will coordinate a process for return when school resumes next year. Parents please label the items you are returning.


If you or anyone in your home is ill or experiencing any symptoms please do not come pick up items. We can arrange for a pick up time at a later time, when you are well.

Announcements

Bus Riders for the 2020-2021 School Year

Though we do not yet know what impact COVID-19 might have on school schedules for the next school year, we need to begin planning bus routes. Bus rider registration will open on May 11. Students who rode the bus in 2019-20 will be notified via School Messenger on May 12. If your child is eligible for transportation and will be riding the bus to the same school next year, you don’t need to take any action. If you need to update your bus service needs for the 2020-21 school year, please go to www.wcpss.net/busrider and let us know.


Families Not Returning To PUE

If your family is moving out of our base attendance zone or if your student will be attending a charter or private school for 2020-21 school year, please email jbaginski@wcpss.net.
