A Note From Mrs. Solomon

Thank you for attending our curriculum nights this week. While it is not our usual experience it does allow for everyone to have conversation and make connections. We appreciate your support and partnership.

Thank you for your patince with the arrival and dismissal procedures, I think we have a plan that is working. Please remember that we would like to have everyone only making a right turn into the lot for drop-off and pick-up. The drop-off and pick-up goes smoother when drivers do not have to stop to let other drivers in. We would appreciate the one lane of traffic flow for both the morning and afternoon. Thank you!

If you find you are running late in the morning and there is no longer supervision outside, please advise your child or children to enter through the front door of the building to check in with the office.

Our students have been working through their iReady assessments this last week as well as their ECRA social emotional learning assessments in-person and remote. All staff will be working through analyzing the data in the coming weeks to help meet students where they are at and set goals.

Hopefully we will have dry weekend for families to be able to enjoy the outdoors. Looking forward to a week of sunshine next week!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Theresa Solomon

How to put books on hold.


Student Self-Certification EVERY DAY

Prior to your child arriving at school, you will need to certify that your child is free from Covid symptoms. This is a two step process that occurs each and every day:

  • Step 1: Log-in here, using your HAC credentials. Answer the questions honestly. If you receive the green "you are good to go" screen, your child is clear to come to school. You do not need to print the green ticket.
  • Step 2: Initial your child's luggage tag (that we will be providing you) signifying your completion of the online form.

Student's have a luggage tag and a weekly dated insert. This tag should hang on their backpack and serves as a quick way for teachers to check that children have been certified, prior to them entering school. Children who are not certified will not be allowed in school until they are certified. Families will be called prior to allowing a student into the school building.

Teachers will have the students replace the weekly insert on Fridays, prior to them leaving for the day. If your child is absent on a Friday or did not receive the new insert, feel free to just flip the previous week's insert over, date and initial it, and we will replace it with a new tag when they return to school.


Wild Rose PTO

Wild Rose PTO is up and running and looking for our community to continue to support our students and staff.

School Issured Devices and Tech Help

If you need technical support with devices, please use the live chat instead of their phone line. It can be found here: https://district.d303.org/elearning-tech-support

Devices will be brought home on a daily basis, and should be charged at home nightly. We will not be storing devices in classrooms.

Your child's email address is their 800#@students.d303.org. You find their 800#, which is their student ID, by logging in to your HAC account.

If you need assistance with passwords please contact your child's in-person or remote teacher.

Teacher Assignments

During this unique time of educating students in both remote and in-person settings, we are making every effort to balance class sizes and maintain a sense of community for all our students. As parents continue to request changes for their children, impacting both remote and in person class size, we will need to continue to shift personnel and adjust the remote and in person classroom makeups. While continuity is our goal, these adjustments may result in changes in placements. We appreciate your patience as we work to provide meaningful educational experiences for all our students.
