October 9th WFMS Family Message
Good afternoon WFMS families,
Teacher Workday - Monday, October 11th
Monday is a teacher workday for traditional calendar schools. We will see our students back in the building on Tuesday. Enjoy the three-day weekend.
Overall our students have been doing a good job following expectations. As we move quickly to the end of the first quarter, please take a moment to review the student expectations document and WCPSS Board Policy 4309 with your student. Students in violation of these expectations will receive consequences aligned with Board Policy.
Expectations are clearly outlined in the WFMS PROUD Matrix and students are expected to adhere to these expectations each day.
We appreciate your support with our expectations and cell phone procedures.
We have seen an increase in negative student behaviors on the bus recently. If your student utilizes bus transportation to and from school, please remind them to follow the student bus expectations. Students who are not adhering to these expectations may be removed from the bus and parents required to provide transportation. Our bus drivers work hard to get students to and from school safely each day and we appreciate their efforts. Please help your student understand the importance of being safe on the bus and not doing things that may distract the driver or lead to an accident or injury of another student.

Students are responsible for their own rides to the high school for the game and from the game after. Students must be picked up 30 minutes after the end of the game. This is typically sometime around 5:45pm - 6pm. Students who are not picked up will not be allowed to attend future games. Students should also review the Spectator Expectations Document before attending a game so they are familiar with these.
