If you get an opportunity, please let both Ms. Smitley and Ms. Schoonover know how much you appreciate them and all that they do for our students, families, and staff.


IMPORTANT REMINDER:  Smart Watches and Gab Watches

We have noticed an increase in Smart Watches and Gab Watches in the building since the winter break. Please review the expectations for these devices from the WCPSS Student/Parent Handbook:


“Except when permitted for instructional use by the teacher, no student may use a personal device (laptop, phone, tablet) during instructional hours. See Board Policies regarding Technology Responsible Use and Code of Student Conduct. Students are expected to comply with these policies when students use a school or personal device on school property, at school-sponsored events, on school-based transportation, or any time a personal device is connected to district technology resources. Any device used in violation of these policies will be confiscated and returned to the student’s parents. See GuidesToTechnology for additional information”


If you have any questions about this policy, please contact school administration.
