New Fence
 
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 the following:
 
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!

DCF Inspection
 
We had our summer inspection by the Department of Children and Families.
We received an excellent report!
Our next inspection will be in the Fall. 
 
It is very important that we have your child's most recent up to date health records on file with us at all times.
 
We appreciate that you make sure your child's records are not expired. Thank you!
 
 
 
Safety First!
 
Please hold your child's hand to and from the parking lot.
 
The JU students are young adult drivers that are not always cautious when passing our building and do not all look out for young children.
 
Please, please help us to keep your child safe!
 
 
 
Cell Phones
 
Cell phones can interrupt communication between parents, children, and teachers.
 
Please refrain from using cell phones inside WLPS. Thank you
 
 
 
Front Door
 
Please only open the front door for parents personally known to you as WLPS family members.
 
If you are not sure, please wait for a WLPS faculty member to open the door.
 
Please do not allow your child to ever open the front door.
 
For safety reasons, we do not want them to get used to opening doors.
 
We teach them that only teachers, moms, dads, grandparents and other adults open doors at WLPS. We appreciate your help with this!
 
 
 
Absent/Sick Children
 
We know you do not send your children to school when they are sick.
 
Children with fevers should not return until free of a fever for at least 24 hours.
 
It is appreciated that children with contagious colds/coughs are kept at home.
 
Please call us to let us know when your child is absent. We worry about them when they are not here.
 
Our number is 256-7147.
 
 
 
Bug Spray
 
Please spray your children with bug spray before they go to class.
 
We are not allowed to do this. It is important to protect them from the West Nile Virus spread by mosquitoes.
