Don’t Forget!

Due to construction of the front entry doors to the gym (on east side), please note the following change:

DROP OFF & PICK UP FOR ALL STUDENTS, 3RD – 12TH GRADES, WILL BE AT THE ENTRANCE ON THE WEST END OF THE SECONDARY BUILDING. Times for drop off and pick up will stay the same; however, we encourage 3rd to 5th grade parents to be on time for pick up (a few minutes early is even better) and 6th-12th grade parents to wait until 3:30 to pick up their students. This will help to alleviate traffic congestion.

This will be the process for drop off and pick up until you receive further notice from the school office.

Thank you all again for your patience and understanding!

Urgent Message From WCS

Meet The Teacher, Student Orientation & First Day of School Date Change

Dear WCS Parents,

As with every construction project of this magnitude, there are bound to be glitches along the way. This project is no different. Our building is using a new energy efficient air system, and there has been a minor setback with its installation.  The manufacturer will be flying in this afternoon to trouble shoot the problem, but they cannot confirm the issue will be resolved by Wednesday. With our local forecast reading temperatures between 97-100 degrees, starting school without AC in the new building is not an option.

The adjusted start date for WCS will be Monday,  August 18th.  Please understand this decision was made with careful consideration, and not taken lightly, and was the recommendation of the General Contractor.  We did not want to wait one day longer to make the decision so those of you who need to make arrangements for your children are able to do so.

Please accept our sincerest apologies.  This situation is out of our control, but we rest knowing that it is definitely in God’s hands.

The following dates reflect ALL changes to this week’s schedule:

Thursday August 14th: Come and Go

  • Secondary 6th-12th Grade:New Student Schedule Pick Up 2p.m.-4 p.m.
