Accountability and Health Protocols Form
Students who are returning to campus must complete the Student Accountability and Health Protocols form. WCPSS emailed this form to families on Tuesday, February 9. This document tells families that students must strictly follow our required health protocols when on our campuses. It also includes possible consequences for non-compliance. If you have already submitted the acknowledgment form to your school, you do not need to do it again.


Returning To School After Diagnosis, Exposure, or Illness

The school district has created a website regarding Returning To School After Diagnosis, Exposure, or Illness. Please see this vital information here.


COVID-19 Protocols

Face Coverings continued to be required for all K-5 students unless they have an approved face covering accommodation.


Morning Health Screenings will continue as they did prior to track out. Please see the PUE Morning Arrival Procedures here.

Read Across America at PUE

Read Across America

Each year, National Read Across America Day is celebrated on March 2nd, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. This motivational and awareness day calls all children and youth in every community across the United States to celebrate reading. It also promotes reading, particularly for children and young adults. To celebrate at PUE we will have a spirit week and our teachers have planned some fun and exciting activities to promote reading.


Read Across America Celebration Spirit Week, March 1-5, 2021

Mon.- Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Day– Hawaiian day because the tree feels tropical

Tues.- Fox in Socks Day – crazy sock day

Thurs.-Oh the Places You’ll Go Day – come dressed for success

Fri.-A Color of His Own-each grade gets a different color and see who has the most spirit

PUE Global March

Keep any eye out for more information about the fun events taking place during the month of March! We will have artists, cultural events, daily messages, COLORING CONTEST, scholastic events, and much more!


PUE Yearbook 2020-2021

PUE is teaming up with TreeRing to create a memorable yearbook to commemorate your child’s year. Please consider helping us capture great photos for this yearbook so the kids can go back through and “remember when.”


We are asking you to set up an account so you can not only order a yearbook, but also submit images. With so many virtual learning experiences, we have an opportunity to capture some cool shots of kids during this different year.


TreeRing also offers parents 2 customizable pages to do themselves, that would only show up in your child’s yearbook. The application to create those pages can run on a computer or on your phone! Think how easy it would be to snap pictures via phone and drop them in the corresponding folder!


Step by step instructions on uploading private and shared folders here.
