We want to remind our students and families that Monday, March 13 will be a regular day of school. Originally, this day was planned as a teacher professional development day. However, we are now using it to make up for a recent snow day.

CHANGE TO ACADEMIC CALENDAR: The WUSD School Board approved modifying the current academic calendar to make Monday, March 13, a regular day of school for students. The day was originally planned as a teacher professional development day, but will now be used to make up for last week’s snow day. This will prevent us from needing to add another day to the end of the school year in June. We appreciate the understanding and flexibility of our families as we make this change.
REMINDER: No School tomorrow, Friday, February 24, for teacher professional development. We’ll see our students again on Monday!
