Dear Families,

We are looking forward to welcoming our students back to school in just a couple of short weeks!  This memo is filled with important information.  Please take the time to read all sections so you are up to date with current information and understand what needs to be completed prior to school beginning.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to one of us directly at eatone@wwcsd.net or sheppardl@wwcsd.net.

Sincerely,

Erin Eaton & Lisa Sheppard

Printable First Day of School Signs | Paper Trail DesignThe First Day of School

The first day of school will be on Monday, August 30, 2021.  This will be a full day for our Eagles.  They will attend from 7:50 am – 2:40 pm.

If your child will be riding the bus this year, you must register for transportation in Parent Connect. Registration for transportation can be completed when you complete the back to school registration process.  All bus routes can be found in Parent Connect.

Updating Registration for Current Students

Please log in to your ParentConnection account to update your child(ren)’s contact information as well as re-acknowledge important school policies.

If you have moved and need to change your address, you will need to bring your new mortgage/lease/current tax bill along with two other proofs of residency to the Administration Office located at 36745 Marquette, Westland MI 48185.

You must be on a computer to complete the registration as it is not mobile/tablet friendly.

 

Open House – Save the Date!

We will have our Open House on August 26, 2021 from 5:00 PM until 6:30 PM.  We invite you and your student to come meet teachers, pick-up schedules, check-out Chromebooks and tour the school.  Please complete the technology agreement form found here to expedite Chromebook distribution prior to Open House.

2020/2021 Yearbooks will be available for pick-up at Open House.  If you can not attend this, we will send your child’s home with him or her once school begins.

Additional Chromebook Distribution 

If you are unable to attend Open House or do not have a ton of time that evening, you may pick-up your child’s Chromebook prior from the main office on Tuesday, August 24th from 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM.  We will not be distributing schedules at this time (they will be available for viewing in Student/Parent Connect), teachers will not be available, and the building will not be open for touring.  This is only for Chromebooks if this option works better for you.

Students will need to begin bringing their Chromebooks to school daily starting on day one.  Students are responsible for charging these nightly and keeping them in their protective cases.

First Day of School Procedures

  • Breakfast doors (Door 4) will open at 7:20 am.  ONLY students having breakfast will be permitted into the cafeteria at this time.
  • The first bell rings at 7:40 am.  Assigned doors will open for students that do not eat school breakfast.
  • Masks are recommended but will be optional for your student.
  • Students will need to turn cell phones off and put them away for the day as they are not permitted.  Our Away for the Day policy can be found here. Please review this with your student.
  • Students will need to put belongings in their lockers upon arrival.  Staff will help students locate lockers and help them with combinations if needed.  Students will not carry bags from class to class this year as lockers will be available during all passing periods.
  • Students will have assigned doors they enter through in the morning. They are as follows and are marked on the map below.
    • Door 4 – This is for any student eating breakfast in grades 6-8.

  • Dismissal is at 2:40 pm.  Please ensure you arrive on time for dismissal and again, do not enter the bus loop.  Students will exit at the same door they enter.
