Hello, This is Kraig Hissong, Superintendent, with some quick announcements. First, Tomorrow, Wednesday, September 11, is our first 1-hour Delay Start Day for students. Please remember that school will start at 8:40 for MS/HS and 8:45 for Elementary. JVS and Mac-A-Cheek students will go at your normal times. Also, WLS is utilizing a system called FinalForms, which allows parents to quickly complete annual student forms online. About Sixty percent of our parents have completed forms for their students, and we thank you! If you have NOT completed these forms, it is imperative you do so as soon as possible since they contain important contact and emergency medical information. Please be advised, your student cannot attend field trips if forms are not completed. For parents with Middle School students, you will need to enter a student email address which is typically firstname.lastname@wlstigers.net. Middle School and High School students are also required to sign off on forms in FinalForms, and they will be given time at school to do so in the next week. If you have NOT received an email from FinalForms to set up an account, or if you have other questions about FinalForms, please contact the Office at 937-465-1060. Last, the morning student drop-off is going well and drivers are doing a great job pulling forward and utilizing more of the drop off lane. Remember to be cautious and have children prepared during morning drop off. Approximately 300 cars drop students off in the morning with most of those doing so in a 10 minute window of time. That is about one car dropping students off every two seconds. Expect traffic congestion if you drop of between 7:25 to 7:35 AM on normal start days. If you like a more relaxing start to your day, try to drop your child off before 7:25 AM. Traffic is much lighter before this time. Thank you and have a good evening.

It was a busy day learning all about gym, library, music class, and discovering all about the lunch room and playground! Lots of new friends were made and excited faces returned on Monday for their very first class picture! The Elementary PTO donated special ‘Class of 2032’ t-shirts for them to keep. We are excited to watch this group learn and grow together! Best of luck Class of 2032!

Many parents have asked for their students e-mail addresses to complete final forms. For sixth-ninth grade, it is their firstname.lastname@wlstigers.net. Highschool addresses vary slightly, but students should know them. Students will log in at school over the next week and complete their portion of the forms. Thank you!

How awesome are our volunteers? The drop off lane has been really smooth but please be reminded that drivers must stay in the car. If you need to retrieve something for your child, please use the parking lot to do so. Thank you for paying attention to our helpful volunteers!

Hello, this is Superintendent, Kraig Hissong, welcoming all students’ families back for the first day of school year. For MS/HS students the first day of school is Tues, Sept 3 from 7:40am -2:54 pm. Students in grades K-5 will be on a staggered start schedule for the first three days of the school year from 7:45 am-2:57 pm. With the staggered start, that means your elementary student will report to school only two days the first week of school. Elementary students with last names A-G will come Tuesday, Sept 3. Elementary students with last names H-M will come Wednesday, Sept 4. Elementary students with last names N-Z will come Thursday, Sept 5. ALL elementary students will report to school on Fri, Sept 6. Kindergarten students should follow the staggered start schedule mailed by Kindergarten teachers. If you have questions about your student’s start date, please call the office. Also, to ensure that the school year gets off to a great start, I want to remind parents to check the website for procedures on “best practices” if you are bringing your students to school and using the parent drop off loop out front. First, please remember that if you are coming to the school from the south, from the Urbana direction, use the new south entrance to enter the school. Once you enter, turn right at the 4 way stop and then left to enter into the parent loop. If you are coming from the north, or from West Liberty, turn right into the north drive and then proceed to the right into the parent drop off loop. One you enter the parent drop off lanes, remember that the fire lane, as well as the curb lane south of the fire lane, towards the MS wing of the building is widely underutilized during morning drop off. This area, when the driver is NOT exiting the vehicle, is available when dropping your students off. Using this entire curb lane will allow more students to exit their vehicles at one time and create less congestion in the left lane and the entrances from Route 68. Per procedure, find a spot as far forward as possible and merge into the right lane (curb lane). After your student exits your vehicle merge back into left lane traffic. Sometimes, it is easier (especially when south of the fire lane) to merge back into the left lane closer to the stop sign when traffic flow allows. Often, parents are dropping their students off as far back as the playground and then merging back into the left lane when spaces are available farther forward. This is creating unnecessary congestion too early in the drop off process. We would, again, like to emphasize that the goal is to find a spot as far forward as possible. In closing, we would like to remind families that students should ALWAYS exit the passenger side of the vehicle in the curb lane only, and drivers are NEVER permitted to exit their vehicle in the drop off lane during drop off times. (Parking is permitted after drop off and during pick up). Should your child need assistance exiting the vehicle, please use the visitor parking lot, and walk your child to the building via the cross walk. We are very excited for this school year and to see all of you next week! Come to the football game tonight, see your friends, enjoy the marching band, and cheer on the Tiger’s as they take on the Falcon’s from Graham. Thank you!
