WES parents, some of you may not be aware that budget cuts are coming to our schools. According to the News & Observer article, our schools will be cleaned less often, teachers will have less money to buy instructional materials, and fewer teachers will be hired.
You can begin registering for carpool tags during the Wakefield Welcome Walk on Wednesday. If you can't attend that day, don't worry, as you can register at any time for new tags at the front office.
Bus stop information can be found on the district website. Please be certain that your child knows the bus route number.
If your child will not be riding the assigned bus, but will be in car pool, or riding a day care van, etc, please send this information in writing to the teacher on Monday, August 29, or as changes occur during the year. Students will go home as indicated each day unless the school receives a note or phone call to the office about a change.
Don't forget that you can set up a My School Bucks account and make paying for school breakfast and lunches easy! Go to My School Bucks and create an account or top up the funds to your existing account. You will need to know your child's student ID number to set up the account. You can also make prepayments at the cafeteria between 7:00 - 10:00am.
Cost of meals are as follows:-
Breakfast $1.25 (Reduced price: free)
RE-LINK you Harris Teeter Card!
Remember that you need to re-link your Harris Teeter card each year! You can do this at the check out or online here. Our school number is 4206.
