Principal's Message


We did it! Our school has received the prestigious “SCHOOL OF

EXCELLENCE AWARD” based on student performance during our first

Year of opening. I am so proud of the hard work our students, staff and parents have done and continue to do to ensure our success.


CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR STUDENTS WHO SIGNED THE BOOK OF HEROES THIS MONTH- NAMES ARE ATTACHED

THESE STUDENTS EACH EARNED 30 HERO TICKETS FROM VARIOUS STAFF MEMBERS THROUGHOUT THE BUILDING. WAY TO GO!


We continue to add to our wonderful KWES family: based on our needs we are hiring an additional cafeteria hostess.


We hope that each and every one of you have a wonderful winter break

filled with joy and laughter!

Sincerely,

Felicia Norwood and Gretchen Drzewucki

Special Announcements

Car riders- please make sure that you do not pass cars in the car rider line. This can be dangerous for students and parents who are loading and unloading students. We will not have a staff person standing in the street to direct cars. They are outside to support students. Parents please be careful.


Please adhere to the pedestrians crossing in the cross walk.

Parents or someone listed on the emergency cards of Kindergartners must be at the bus stop each day to pick up their students. We are having many Kinders come back each day because no one is at the bus stop.


Please feel free to download the My Bus app so that you can know where your child’s bus is at all times. You can find this app on our webpage. website. Of course, you can also contact transportation with your concerns at 571-402-3912.


Cafeteria News

Please make sure that your child has enough funds on their lunch accounts for lunch each week. Remember you have to complete a new lunch application each year. They are located online at pwcs.edu or you can get one from the office. You can send in a payment with your child in a sealed envelope that is sent directly to the lunchroom each day or pay online at www.myschoolbucks.com.

Please review the new regulation Payment for Charged Food Purchases regulation 460-1,in regards to school lunches on the PWCS website or the attached QR code.

More information on lunch menus and payment options can be found at http://pwcsnutrition.com/.

Just a reminder that any student who owes $100 on a lunch bill will be given an alternative lunch according to the regulation. The intent of the new regulation 460-1 is to establish a division-wide process to handle situations when students have unpaid meal charges and delinquent account debt.


NEW ATTENDANCE POLICY

Parents new this year is regulation 724-1 Attendance Monitoring and Truancy Intervention. No longer will preapproved absences be excused unless under extraordinary circumstances. Family trips should be scheduled during school holidays and over summer break. Absences for family trips will not be excused unless accompanied by extraordinary circumstances and in no case for any period exceeding five school days without the approval of the Office of Student Services. A determination of whether extraordinary circumstances exist lies in the discretion of the principal, in collaboration with the Office of Student Services. If your child has over 5 days of unexcused absences, a referral will be sent to the Attendance officer for compliance with the compulsory education laws.
