In the event of Inclement Weather and School Closings, an ONE CALL NOW message will be sent out to all parents who have working numbers in the Student Information section of Infinite Campus. School Closings and late announcements will also be called in to WPSD. If there is no school, the call will be made by 5:30 AM. Sometimes the number shows up resembling a toll free call. If you do not wish to be contacted, get in touch with the Board of Education at 270-472-1553. Please keep all phone numbers current in case of emergencies.
Welcome Back to School! We are thrilled to start this school year with some new staff, exciting classes and added sports. Some of the new classes at the high school include: Coding II, Weightlifting, Broadcast Journalism and Marine Biology. Students in the Middle School can take Coding, Algebra I and Spanish I for high school credit. Our staff is working hard to keep up with this technological society in order to prepare the students for the 21st Century. Academics are always in the forefront as we prepare all children to become college or career ready by the time they graduate.
New sports are Middle School Softball, Cross Country, Track and Field and Wrestling (Carr Elementary Only). Our long term goal is to have a sport or after school activity for every child. We would like to remind students and parents that we have Bulldogs Beyond the Bell (B3) for grades 3-8; please see Kim Jobe if you want to participate. This program begins immediately after school and ends at 5:45 PM. It is a great tool to finish homework and get enrichment activities.
There have been several changes in the Student Handbook, so students and parents need to read it carefully. The biggest changes are Attendance and Behavior. Please notice that the changes are highlighted for your convenience. If there are things you do not understand, please feel free to contact me at 270-472-1553.
We would like to invite parents and community members to become a part of our school. If you have a special talent, time to spare, or even items to donate, you may contact the school. We would also like to have mentors for students to help with homework, reading, or just to be available to talk. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the principal at the school.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year, and invite you to join me in this journey!
Tamara Smith, Superintendent
