Parents and Students of WMS, Because of the lifting of COVID protocols, we can return to normal entry. 7th-grade students can enter the building at door 16 on the first floor this year as they did last year. However, 6th and 8th-grade students should enter at Door 17. Last year 8th grade would come through Door 18. This is no longer necessary and we ask that 8th-grade students enter Door 17 as they have in the past. Thanks and we look forward to a great year!
Good morning, Parents of Summer School students please look for a weekly report coming home from your child's teacher every Friday. There will also be a final report going on June 24. Thanks for your help.
