Please spread the word that the t-shirts are for sale. They cost $12 for sizes through adult XL. There is an extra fee for 2XL - 4XL as indicated on the order form. I will have order forms in my office today and tomorrow. Laura Pierce has volunteered to be in charge of ordering the t-shirts, but she needs the orders by Friday night if we win. I wanted to forward the design because on the copied order form you cannot see the outline of the maroon basketball.
REVISED MESSAGE: WFS is now utilizing an automated calling system to notify parents when their children are absent. If a student is marked absent 1st hour, the system will automatically call the parent at 9:45 a.m., regardless whether the absence is excused or unexcused and/or whether you have already contacted the school or not. If you have already contacted the school or know that your child’s absence will be excused, there is no need to contact the school again. At approximately 3:45 p.m., the automated system will scan attendance for the entire day and send out a notification if a child has been marked absent any class period. Therefore, if your child is absent 1st hour, you will receive a call at both 9:45 a.m. and 3:45 p.m. (See news article for more information.)
