Please enter through door 1. You can press the bell to talk to the office, but you will be asked to wait in the entryway area between the 2 sets of doors. To minimize the amount of germs in the building we are limiting entry into the building to staff and students only. Lastly, don't forget to wear a mask!

Mask Reminder

All students must come to school with a mask on each day. Please pack an extra one in their backpack in case it breaks or gets dirty.

The Wausau School District has a New Inclement Weather Plan!

If school is closed for inclement weather, students are expected to log into SeeSaw at 8:30 and attend their google meets throughout the day. It is no longer a day off of school and therefore, no days will be added to the school calendar in June.
