WBMS One Call -- 9/5/18

Day # 2 is off to a great start with one snag. At approximately, 6:00 a.m., two bats were discovered in the middle school cafeteria seating area - before school started this morning. The seating area was closed and no students have come into contact with the bats. Students were provided breakfast in the library.

Professional animal removal technicians have been contacted and will be dispatched to the school. If the situation is not resolved by lunch time, students will eat in the library, gym, or outside (weather permitting).

A huge thank you to our custodial and kitchen staff for making this situation work for all our students. Any questions can be directed to Principal Fowler at 330-938-4300.

Have a great day, and as always - Go Warriors!

WBMS One Call -- 9/5/18

Good evening, everyone. It's Mr. Fowler and first let me apologize about sending another one call. I try not to do too many of these but they are sometimes necessary to get the year up and running. 

First, don't forget that there are two entrances to the school. You can use either the Main Street entrance or the Ellett Road entrance. Word from a few parents was the Ellett Road side was very easy to use and much quicker than the Main Street side with the light at 62. 

Second, please be sure you let your child know where you will pick them up after school. There was some confusion about this today. 

If you have a high schooler that drops off their sibling, please remind them to not be speeding through the lot. We had a couple of instances of this already this morning. 

We're working through schedule changes and hope to have most of those completed by Friday or Monday at the latest. 

Thanks for a great first day. 
Damascus & Knox Elementary -- 9/5/18

Good Evening Warior Nation.  The August 16, 2018 water sample reports for Damascus and Knox Elementary Schools can be found on our district website under the spotlight news section.

Have a great night and as always Go Warriors!

District One Call -- 8/30/18

Good Afternoon Warrior Nation,  We are excited to announce that the majority of back to school forms will be completed using the district's online system OneView.

This system simplifies the process of filling out forms for your children because much of the information you will be asked to complete will be automatically imported from our student information system.  Parents will need their children's Student IDs (same as lunch number) to complete this process. This number is being provided in a letter mailed home this week. If you know this number and are ready to get started, please log on and create an account!

The WBLSD OneView web portal is available on our website under the Parent Tab at the top of the main page and in  the district spotlight news section under the title On Line Forms.  If you do not have internet access or computers at home, computer labs will be open at all buildings on September 4th from 4-6 pm.

If you cannot attend that night, please feel free to call your child's school to schedule a convenient time to complete these forms.

Have a great day, and as always - Go Warriors!
