Tick Tok Challenge:

You may be aware of some social media threats that some schools have received. I’m grateful that our students have not participated in spreading these rumors. To my knowledge, no student at our school has shared these social media posts or taken part in the spreading of false rumors. 

Please know that we take school threats of any kind very seriously. WCPSS Security and law enforcement agencies investigate all threats and evaluate their validity. We also work with law enforcement and the courts to prosecute anyone, adult or student, responsible for making a threat or perpetrating a hoax to the fullest extent possible under the law.


We intend to have a productive day of learning and teaching today. 


We ask your support in the following ways:

  • If you or your child sees a threat of violence posted on social media, report it immediately to our school administration or local law enforcement. 
  • Remind your child not to share or forward until law enforcement has had a chance to investigate. Sharing threats spreads misinformation and causes panic, and could result in consequences for your child.

Assignment Strips:

Each year, the Office of Student Assignment prints and distributes assignment strips that are sent home with students.  These assignment strips notify parents/legal custodians of a student’s school assignment for the next school year, the level of transportation the student is expected to receive, as well as a timeline of upcoming important dates. Assignment strips will be in the Monday Folder on 12/20 for Tracks 2,3,4.  Assignment strips for Track 1 were mailed.

Parents/legal custodians with a Homebase PowerSchool account: Your student will not receive a hard copy of the assignment strip.  Families will be able to sign into their PowerSchool account and access this information.
