                 HEALTHY HIGHLIGHTS

It's the end of the first full week of school for our PreK-5 students...and boy, are we all TIRED! It's hard work to be a student! It's a perfect time to remind our families of the American Pediatric Association's sleep recommendations for young children is much more than most get. Bedtime routines are important and change can sometimes be difficult, but coming back to school full time is a big change and going to bed to allow for a proper night’s sleep is critical. Children need between 8-10 hours of sleep a night. That is a minimum.  That might sound like a lot however, remember they are growing and very busy throughout the day. I am here to help you and your student. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

WE ARE A NUT FREE/NUT SAFE SCHOOL

Nut Free/Nut Safe School...what does that mean?  It means we want all of the students at WCS to be safe and able to enjoy a learning environment without having to worry about a severe allergic reaction. We have sent letters home with students in lower grades to inform parents that there is a student in the class with a nut/egg type allergy and to remind them not to send food with these items in them.  It is important to note that sometimes it is enough to just have the food item present (still in the wrapper, not opened) to cause an allergic reaction. I want each of us to think, “if it was my child that had this allergy how would I want  other parents to respond?”  If you have questions, please contact the school nurse.
