Reopening School Update


Hello WBES Parents,


We have had a good start to the new school year.  I appreciate your encouragement, support, and flexibility.  I wanted to share a couple of updates with you all. 


For our students participating in virtual learning, we will be tweaking the virtual assignments over the next few weeks to make the lessons more user friendly.  You should be noticing gradual changes soon.


Please note this change for car riders:  Beginning Monday, August 31st, ALL car riders (including pre-k)  will be dropped off in the front of the building.  The front doors open at 7:30 am.  Parents, please do not drive around the back of the school in the mornings.  Buses will continue to unload in the back of the building.


Also, concerning cars during arrival and dismissal, parents please do not pass other cars in any lane.  Children are crossing in multiple locations and it is a safety concern if cars are passing one another.  Also, parents, please stay in your vehicle.  Do not leave your car unattended and walk to the school door or motion for your child to walk to your vehicle a different way than the other students.  The reason we have all students walk down the center of the lanes is for their safety.


Thank you for your cooperation.  We are looking forward to another great week!


If  you have any questions, please call me at the school office, 205-938-9005
