MISSED PICTURE DAY? MAKE-UP PICTURE DAY IS MARCH 13

If you missed picture day, we will have a make-up picture day on Wednesday, March 13. This is not a photo re-take day, but it is the last chance for students to get their photo taken for the WYIS yearbook. Students must wear their uniform polo. If it is PE day for a student who needs a photo, they can bring their polo to change into for the photo.

CAMPUS HOURS/CAMPUS SAFETY

For the safety of our students and staff, we always aim to know who is on our campus. Please remember, the WYIS campus closes at 4:00 each day. Students and families should exit campus by 4 unless they are participating in an after-school activity or have a pre-arranged event or meeting.

TIPS FOR GOOD HEALTH DURING FLU SEASON

It's winter cold and flu season. In order to keep our students and staff healthy, please keep the following in mind:

  • If your child has a fever or shows other signs of illness, please keep them home for at least one full day after the fever is gone. This helps avoid a recurrence of the illness and ensures the child is fully recovered.
  • Do not send your child to school if they have bad colds, fever (37.5?C /99.6?F or above), any contagious condition, diarrhea, vomiting, or nausea. Germs spread quickly in a classroom of children. Keeping a sick child home shows care for other school families and helps keep the school a much healthier place for your child.
  • Students who are ill will be sent home after parents or emergency contacts have been notified. Students who have vomiting, diarrhea, fever, or who are obviously unwell in appearance, will automatically be sent home. If a student has been sent home, he/she may not return to school that day.
  • If a child is recovering from an illness or injury and is required to stay indoors during recess or physical education, a written note from home must be sent with the child to the child¡¯s teacher.
  • If a student needs to take medication at school, the medicine must be given directly to the teacher and must have a signed and dated note from the parent clearly stating the details of the medicine - its dosage and at what time it needs to be given.
  • Students who are unable to attend school due to illness will not be permitted to take part in extra-curricular school activities falling on that day. Students must arrive in school before 11:00 a.m. in order to be eligible for participation on any particular day.
