School opening details announced at WCS

Students at the High School start their day Sept. 7 at 8 a.m. reporting to their first period class except for 7th and 8th grade students, who will meet in the cafetorium for a brief assembly.

Student schedules for grades 7 through 12 will tentatively be mailed Aug. 27. Students should bring their schedules to school on the first day. If changes are necessary, guidance counselors will be available Sept. 7 to make adjustments.

The high school will be continuing its Warrensburg Pride program this fall. Students will have the expectations for behavior in the hallway, classrooms, on the bus, and in the cafeteria reinforced during the morning assembly. All Varsity and Junior Varsity teams have begun practicing. Any student who would still like to try out for a team should contact Athletic Director Steve Nolan at 623-2861, ext.227. Modified practices will begin as follows: Football - Sept. 1, 3-5 p.m. at the high school; Field Hockey - Sept. 1, 3-5 p.m. at the high school; Soccer - Sept. 1, 3-5 p.m. at the elementary school; Volleyball - Sept. 7, 3-4:15 p.m. at the high school. All athletes need a blue card, health status sheet and participation form. All required forms can be found at www.wcsd.org and follow the Athletics link.

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 2:55 p.m.

This year breakfast is $1 and lunch is $1.75. Reduced price lunch is 25 cents. If parents believe they qualify for free or reduced-price breakfast and/or lunch, they should complete the application form in the Parent-Student Handbook, which each student will receive on the first school day, and return the application to the cafeteria manager as soon as possible.

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