WCS school opening details announced

High school procedures outlined

Students in the high school start their day at 8:02 a.m. Students are to report to their first period class on Sept. 8, except for 7th and 8th graders, who will meet in the cafetorium for a brief assembly.

Student schedules for grades 7 through 12 will tentatively be mailed Aug. 28. Students should bring their schedules to school on the first day. If changes are necessary, guidance counselors will be available Sept. 8 to make adjustments.

The high school will be kicking off its Warrensburg PRIDE program this fall. With an array of prizes and other incentives for thoughtful and orderly behavior, students will doubtlessly be meeting or exceeding conduct expectations in the classroom, on the bus, and in the cafeteria, school officials said.

Sports practices launched

All school Varsity and Junior Varsity teams have begun practicing. Any student who would still like to try out for a team should contact school Athletic Director Steve Nolan at 623-2861, ext. 227. Modified practices will begin as follows: football: Sept. 1, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the high school; field hockey: Sept. 3, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the high school; soccer: Sept. 3, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the elementary school; volleyball: Sept. 3, 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the elementary school. All athletes need a blue card, health status sheet and participation form. All required forms can be found at the school website, www.wcsd.org and click on "Athletics."

School transportation, meal plans

Again this year, a shuttle bus will transport students who want to walk to the elementary school and then get bused to the high school. This bus departs from the rear of the elementary school each morning at 7:40 a.m. In the afternoon, a shuttle will transport high school students to the elementary school at 2:25 p.m. and again at 3:05 p.m.

This year, breakfast is $1 and lunch is $1.50. If parents believe they qualify for free or reduced-price lunch and breakfast, they should complete the application form in the front of the Parent-Student Handbook, which each student will receive on the first day of school, and return the application to the school Business Office as soon as possible.

Parents and friends are encouraged to take advantage of the information posted on the district website, from school lunch menus to teachers' assignments. Visit www.wcsd.org to stay in touch with school events.
