  • Health and Wellness: Flu season has started! The health office is starting to see fevers and flu-like symptoms throughout the grade levels. Please help us keep our students and staff healthy by keeping your child home if they have a fever. Students may still be contagious and pass their symptoms on to others for up to 24 hours after they have had a fever. We ask that you keep your child home until they have been fever-free without using fever-reducing medications for least 24 hours. Thank you for your help!
  • Morning Drop Off Supervision: Students who arrive before 7:45 a.m. and are not eating breakfast will not be allowed to enter into the cafeteria. There is no supervision in the front of the building or in the backyard until 7:45 a.m.. Please make other arrangements in the morning for your child if they are not eating breakfast.

  • Math tutoring The Math Department is pleased to invite you to participate in its 2nd year of their WCA Math student-tutor program. Parents may sign their students up in grades K-8 to be tutored by a High School student. Sessions are one day a week from 3:30 - 4:30 at the MS/HS Academic Advancement Center and students will be matched with a tutor according to timing preferences selected at registration. There is a two-week time frame for students to be matched with a tutor; you will be contacted within that time frame. Cost for this weekly tutor session is $10/session to be paid directly to the tutor.
