UNIFORM POLICY UPDATES

We've updated our uniform policy to give you an extra option for uniform bottoms. Instead of elementary and secondary wearing separate colors for bottoms, now all students can either wear tan (light brown) or navy (dark blue) bottoms with their uniform top. (No blue jeans for secondary.) There is no change for the PE uniform.

Our 2019/2020 Parent-Student Handbook has these updated changes and the complete uniform policy.

FINGERPRINTS FOR FASTER LUNCH SERVICE

As you know, students need to scan their Student ID to pay for school lunch. Now, we also have fingerprint scans to aid with the process. Within the next few weeks, we will set up a fingerprint collection table set up in the cafeteria. New students have already been fingerprinted. Any returning students who would like to be fingerprinted can go to the table for a quick fingerprint scan and then begin to use their fingerprint for lunch service. There is no need to register -- the student can just go to the table during their lunch hour. A fingerprint scan makes the lunch line go much faster, which means your child will have more time to eat their lunch. If you have questions about this, please contact wyisoffice@wyischina.com.

AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES UPDATE

After-school activities for Quarter 1 will begin in early September. We invite all parents to get involved by leading or assisting with these activities.

If you have questions or ideas regarding after-school activities, please contact After-School Activities Coordinator, Aaron Householder.
