West Park Friday Afternoon Parent Update 5/28/2021
Hello WPE families!
What a wonderful week we had at WPE. The weather was glorious for our abbreviated, COVID friendly field day experience – see the pictures below! Shout out to Mrs. Ayers and the entire Project Dream and WPE staff for helping our students enjoy such a wonderful day.
*If your mailing address has changed or will be changing, please let the front office know. We will be mailing out registration packets with teacher assignment letters in early July. We need this information to get to you safely! The WPE office number is 719-486-6890.
*Thank you for your patience with our phones being down this week. The WPE Cell Phone is 719-293-0931 if you ever need to use it! You can all or text this cell phone. There is a system issue starting in Colorado Springs and our phone provider is currently working on a fix.
*First grade parents, please see the attached letter from Mrs. Allen and Ms. Kohn about our field research at Hayden Meadows next week.
*Virtual parents – please return your child’s device on or before June 17th. We are excited to invite all students back to in-person learning in August. There will be no virtual programming for students next year at our school.
*Following Lake County Health Department recommendations, we will continue to wear masks inside of our schools through the end of this school year. We will be following Health Department guidelines for the new school year in August, as well, and will communicate those with families at that time. Our students have adapted so well to school with masks and new guidelines- I am so proud of their flexibility!
*As the end of the year approaches, please know that we will have small, class-based celebrations that teachers are planning among the grade levels. Out of an abundance of caution, these will be held within the classroom and on a class by class basis, not as a whole group. Only students and teachers will be at these celebrations. We look forward to having our regular, school-wide celebrations next year! The teachers are planning a special ceremony, and each student will get an item to remember the year by to take home and share with their parents.
