Weekly Message: September 12, 2022

Happy Sunday, Wakelon Families! This is your Principal, Mrs. Nealy, with your weekly Sunday update. Here are a few announcements and points of information for the upcoming week.

Carpool- We had a fantastic week as we welcomed our Kindergartners into the building! With more students on campus and issues with our yellow bus route, we recognize that this could impact the efficiency of our carpool line as we have more cars to process through. In order to help the quickness, please be sure to practice your child's carpool number with them.  We ask that all families follow carpool expectations.  Safety for you and your child is always our first priority, so please follow all of the guidelines asked by our adults on duty.  Our school leadership team will meet this week to have some further discussion and plan how we can make our carpool more efficient.  

Kindergarten Carpool- Kindergarten families, please make sure your kindergarten student goes through the front door of Wakelon Elementary when entering the building each morning. Teachers are at their classroom doors greeting students each morning and are not able to open their back doors to let students in this way. Thank you for your understanding of this.

Picture Day-Please note a couple of events coming soon of which you should be aware. In your child's folder, please note the picture day form/flyer which will be held on September 13th. The Fall pictures will be used for the yearbook.   You can preorder pictures online at and use the code: EVTDGX4VX 

If you are sending cash please make sure you send the exact change. The photographers are not able to distribute cash back on picture day. We look forward to students having an opportunity to show their best Wakelon smiles!

School Lunch-Please remember to visit our website to fill out Free and Reduced Lunch forms or to apply money to your child's lunch account.
