Hello Families, this is Kraig Hissong, Superintendent of WL-S, with important information concerning Friday, Free Lunch and Breakfast Delivery for students on days they will be on remote learning at home and on bus route pick up and drop of times for students riding the bus during our hybrid schedule.
First, Free lunches for all students are available even while we are on our Hybrid schedule. Those breakfasts and lunches will be delivered by bus drivers, door to door, on Fridays, for the three remote learning days each week. Delivery dates are Friday, December 4th, December 11th, and December 18th. If you wish for the breakfasts and lunches to be delivered to your home for your child(ren), you will need to call or email Kathy Smith at 937 465 1075 x 136 or KSmith@wlstigers.org. In your phone message or email, please leave your name and your student’s names. We will take that information and add it to the list for deliveries. If you live in the village of West Liberty or are open enrolled, we will likely have multiple bus stops available for you to pick up your lunches. Please remember that these lunches are free and will ensure that your children have lunches available to them during the hybrid schedule.
Next, since only about half the number of students will be riding the school bus each day next week, please allow for your bus driver to arrive up to 10 minutes earlier or 10 minutes later than your normal pick-up or drop-off time. We should know by Wednesday of next week what approximate time drivers will arrive at your bus stop or home after the routes have been driven for a couple of days. We apologize for this change, but it is difficult for us to predict the impact of less students riding the bus and pick-up/drop-off times. By Wednesday, we should have a time identified for our families for the remainder of the Hybrid schedule.
Hello Families, this is Kraig Hissong, Superintendent of WL-S, with important information about reporting COVID positive cases while we are on Thanksgiving Break. Since it is unlikely that you will be able to reach a staff member beginning tomorrow at school by phone, we would like families to report any COVID cases that occur in your immediate family and impact a student(s) by using the Report COVID + Results link found on our website under the MENU tab or on our WL-S Tiger App. Click on this link and you will be taken to an electronic form where you can input your child’s name and answer a few questions that will help us ensure that contact tracing is completed, a Return to School date is established, and any materials, etc. can be provided to your student. Please utilize this option if you are unable to connect with someone from the school. We want to ensure that if anyone at school is a close contact, that we are able to contact those individuals as soon as possible. We will monitor this reporting system daily.
Key Club held their last meeting as a full group for 2020 and used the time to make cards for the HS teachers and staff. They wanted to leave them with some encouragement before the holiday break and remind them that they are appreciated! This particular card speaks to the impact the entire staff has on our students Take a moment to read it and thank you for sharing your awesome students with us each day!view image
WLS would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to our students and their families for the generous donations to our local food banks! Last week, the elementary challenged the middle school/high school to bring in the most food items and load up our local food pantries for the holidays. The winning school would get to put a pie in the face of the losing principal! The results are in and one unlucky principal received a pie in the face, as promised. Check out the video to see who won the food drive challenge and enjoy!view image
