All WCR3 families need to complete this. If you do not have computer access, we will have a station at Back to School Day next Wednesday with staff who can assist you!

Morning Drop- Off

If you plan on dropping off and/or picking up your student from school, please pull up along the curb on the circle driveway as far forward as you can, so that all of our students can get dropped off quickly and safely. Please follow the directions of the staff out front directing traffic.

If you need extra time, due to instruments, large items, etc., please pull into the parking lot, the first row is reserved for you!

Students that need to eat breakfast can go directly to the cafeteria when they arrive in the morning.  6th graders will go to the commons before the 1st hour bell.  7th and 8th graders will go to the field house before the 1st hour bell.

Dismissal Process

Consistency is important for your students when it comes to getting home in the afternoon, but we know that at times, things come up. If you need to change how your student is going home, please contact the office prior to 2:00pm. We will not be able to make changes to dismissal after 2:00pm.


Fall Sports practices will start on August 20.

Fall and Winter Sports Parent meeting will be on August 27 starting at 6:30.  Please park in the back parking lot and enter through door 33.

Classroom Managed Behavior

Teachers will be using a tool to keep you informed of classroom related behavior issues.

Part of that tool includes a brief email with  a PDF document informing you about the concern and/or incident.

If you were unable to attend our Open House, our Welcome Center will be open on Thursday and Friday, at 8:00am for students and their parents to pick up schedules and locker assignments. Additionally, Picture Retake Day will be September 24 for those students that miss out at the Open House.
