Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome to a new school year at Wilkinson County Primary School. As all of you are aware, we are experiencing unique and challenging times in our schools, communities and nation. I would like to assure you that our local board of education, superintendent, administrators and all staff are taking every precaution to make sure that we are all safe--following all required guidelines set forth by the Department of Health, Georgia Department of Education and the Governor. The theme for Wilkinson County Primary School is BEE Your Best at WCPS:
Please know that the faculty and staff at Wilkinson County Primary School is committed to providing a safe, supportive learning environment for your child through multiple support systems. This includes keeping open communication between home and school. We use multiple methods to communicate with parents. One major method used by our teachers is Class DOJO. This messaging system lets you know how if your child is having a good day and following rituals and routines. In addition, weekly progress go home for K-2 students so that you can know how your child is performing academically.
We believe that instructional time is to be held sacred. Therefore, if you want to meet with your child’s teacher, we ask that you make an appointment so as not to disrupt teaching and learning. While your child is at WCPS, a love for learning will be cultivated through engaging classroom activities that promote literacy, mathematics and citizenship.
Please understand that your child’s safety is extremely important to us. Therefore, the protocol for student pick up and car riders has been changed. These protocols as well as other valuable information can be found in this handbook. Other important school information is in the following pages of this handbook to include policies, rules, regulations, and expectations regarding your child’s academic performance and behavior at Wilkinson County Primary School. Please read this handbook carefully and bring any questions to your child’s teacher. The last page should be signed and returned to school within three days of receipt. Let’s get ready for an extraordinary school year!
Dr. Bonnie Green
