Greetings Hawks, 

Happy First Week! We hope you have a great week #ontheHil. Remember to check our website for information and updates. Here are a few reminders:

  • Be sure your student knows how they will go home. Dismissal can be stressful for students. When they are unsure of transportation, that adds to the stress. Remember, always call the main-office if you have transportation changes or updates. Teachers do not check their emails regularly during the day.
  • Send your student with lunch or lunch money! You can also add money to your student's lunch account by visiting, a direct link is on our website, under the Parents tab.
  • Remember to dress your student comfortably. Students should be able to walk well in shoes and move freely in clothes. As a reminder, hats, masks, and bandanas are prohibited inside the building. For full details on the WCPSS Dress Code, you can visit
  • We understand the tradition of walking students into class on the first days of school. We want your family to create special moments and memories as well. Please remember our parking lot is small. Do not block cars into the lot. Do not park in the carpool or bus loop. You may safely park on the street; however, be aware of walkers and students entering our building.
  • Kindergarten Families: Remember, your student will attend one day this week, based on their last name. You can find the breakdown of those dates here: Kindergarten Open House is on Friday, August 30, 2019 from 1-2pm. Families will be able to meet their child's teacher at that time.
  • Safety is always a priority #ontheHil. Our doors remained locked at all times. Always ring the bell for assistance when visiting campus. Never encourage your child to open a door through text messaging.
  • Students may carry cell phones; however, they are not allowed to use them in class without the clear instruction of the teacher.
