    If students arrive on campus after 8:30 am, please come to the door and sign your child in tardy with the QR code. Students should not be coming in after 8:30 a.m. without an adult checking them in.


    All WCPSS laptops will stay at school so students can use them for educational purposes during the school day and during assessments. When students are using their device, we are asking students to refrain from having food or their water bottle at their desk. Spills are happening and devices are impacted.

    SAFETY UPDATES Here is a link to our Lacy Protocols for Families to better understand our structures and routines to ensure that every child is safe and learning in our building. The district is using the CDC guidelines for COVID: Covid-19 Information


    This is just a reminder that students need to have their phone and Smart watches on Airplane Mode and placed in their bookbag for the day.



    Composure is the first skill of Conscious Discipline. Without it, accessing the other skills is impossible.

    Skill of Composure: Active Calming

    · We cannot begin to solve the problem if we are unable to manage upset. Active calming allows us to begin to put a pause between the stimulus and our response.

    · If we want a child to calm down and cooperate, we must become calm and cooperative. For a child to achieve an executive state, we must first achieve one ourselves.

    · A child cannot be in a higher state than the adult. We must begin by uploading the internal state we want our children to achieve.
