Wamsutta Family Update 10/19/2018
Posted on 10/19/2018
Good morning, Wamsutta families.  We have a very brief update this week.
Backpack Alert and Digital Notices:  Information on the Flu Clinic went home on paper today and a copy of it is attached as well.
1.       We are getting close to where we need to be in terms of student IDs.  Starting on Monday, all students should report immediately to the office if they have a lost or forgotten ID.  For forgotten IDs, students will receive a temporary ID good for that day.  They may do this six times per year without penalty.  After that, they may face office discipline should they continue to forget.  For lost IDs, student will be issued new permanent IDs, and the first lost ID is replaced free of charge.  For the 2nd lost ID, the charge is $5.00.  After that, it is $10 per lost ID.  Please help us avoid both discipline and payments for lost IDs by reminding your children to bring their ID every day.  If you have any questions or concerns, email me.
2.       We have a new District Bulletin from our Labor Advisory Board (LAB) highlighting many of the goings on at WMS and all our schools.  We hope this Bulletin helps keep families up to date about the efforts of our District in many different areas.  It is our first attempt at this, so I welcome your feedback.  The Fall Bulletin can be found here: https://sway.office.com/rf3FoXYn9rO5RJHo?ref=Link
3.       The state is trying to promote its’ “aMAzing educators” program.  It’s a nomination form that students and families can use to praise their “favorite” teacher.  If you or your child wishes to nominate a teacher who has gone above and beyond to help them, feel free to take a moment or two and nominate them here:  http://www.doe.mass.edu/amazingeducators/
