We have a beautiful new fence in our front yard! Thank you-JU!!!
We love for you to have time with your child and other families
after school hours at our picnic table out front. As you know it is always important to us that
our children practice good safety habits!
For your child’s safety, please observe and teach your children
Ø Children must be in your view at all times at the front of the
building (not the side).
Ø 2. Children must NOT climb or play close to the fence. It
fences off a “round about” that has a great deal of University Traffic.
Ø 3. Please continue to be diligent in always observing the children.
Perhaps the parents could take turns being the “LOOK OUT”.
We are so happy to see our children having additional time to
learn, play, and share with their classmates! Please help us to make sure it is a safe time!
Payments for WLPS tuition can now be paid on line.

can be used for purchases at a variety of local retailers – grocery and
department stores and restaurants. They do not expire and can be used

form of a percentage of the face value, sometimes as great as 15%.
