Next Tuesday is quickly approaching as we re-open our doors for a new school year. As the new Principal of Wilshire E.S., I am very excited to meet all of our students and families and get to know this fantastic community.
Just a reminder of the first day procedures:
Students are asked to congregate at the back of the school where they will be met by staff who have alphabetical lists and placement information for all students. Parents and guardians will be invited to join the students on the tarmac to see who their child(ren)’s teacher is/are. Please be advised that school starts at 8:55, our lunch hour is 12:35-1:35 and the scheduled end time is 3:15 for all grades. For the first day, please ensure that your child brings a lunch. On the first day, JK students attend for the morning only, ending at 11:45.
If it is raining on the first day of school, our back doors will be open – only students will be brought into the gym and the Multi-Purpose Room to be placed in classes. We will not be able to accommodate parents in this smaller space. Kindergarten students will enter through the Kindergarten play area doors. We are encouraging parents/guardians and their children to walk to school or park on one of the adjacent streets and walk to school. Our parking lot is very busy and arrival and dismissal times and safety is our primary concern. Please remember not to park in the Kiss and Ride area!
I hope all of our students enjoy the last long weekend of the summer. Our staff and I cannot wait to see everyone on Tuesday, September 4!
Mr. Cory Barlow, Principal
