From Our Kitchen to Yours


Wheatfield Elementary has adopted a policy that we do not accept requests for children to be placed in a specific teacher’s classroom. It is impossible to find an equitable method to permit requests for a certain teacher. We utilize computer technology as well as other criteria to create class lists. If you feel that your child has special requirements or would not work well with one certain teacher, please write a note and send it to the office, or you may contact the school office to make an appointment to discuss your child’s needs. Thank you.


If any information such as address, phone number, or emergency contacts change for your child, please call the school office. This will help us keep students’ records up-to-date. Since we notify all households regarding delays or cancellations via Skyward Skylert, it is very important that we have the correct phone number especially if your child gets sick or gets hurt.


The nurse has several incomplete immunization records. If you have current records for your child, please turn them in to the nurse. If you have questions, please call Mrs. Ward at extension 6104. Thank you for helping us to keep your child’s records up to date.

From time to time articles and pictures about events at our school or student awards may be published in the local paper, on Facebook, or on our website. If you do not want your child’s name or picture published, please notify the school office in writing.

Treat Reminder

Just a friendly reminder that when you are sending in treats for a class, please make sure that they are individually wrapped and store bought. Some ideas include granola bars, Hostess products, fruit snacks, individual snack packs of chips, goldfish, etc. Thank you!

Masks & Replenishing Supply

We need your help. Please make sure your child is wearing a mask when getting on their bus. Thank you for staying on top of this. An idea is to keep an extra one in their bookbag. We are having to give out a lot of masks. Also, please encourage them to keep their masks on. During school, students are doing a great job! We just need to be more diligent while on the bus. Thank you!
