Breakfast Procedure Change


 Starting Monday, November 5, all classes will start a new breakfast procedure.  The students will no longer go to the cafeteria and stand in line for their breakfast.  They will go directly to class and the breakfast will be waiting for them when they arrive to school.  In order to have their order ready prior to their arrival, students will be asked to order their breakfast the morning before.  If a student is absent on the day a breakfast was ordered, the account will be corrected.  This process will help to get the students to the classroom in a more timely manner.  

Thank you for your patience while we begin this new procedure.

Wea Ridge Run Club


The WRRC is having its annual fall race on Saturday, November 10. Registration will begin at 8:15 with the race starting at 9:00. Parent volunteers should also arrive at this time. A huge thank you to Mrs. Wright & Mrs. Shively who help to make the WRRC happen on a weekly basis. Also, thanks once again to McCutcheon cross country coach Mr. Boener for setting up our course & officiating. Thanks to the parent volunteers & my brother Dave Webber & Einstein bagels for helping us with food. You are all awesome! It is great to have another fall race after 6 years off. Just a reminder that the online store through Knoy Apparel is now open through next Wednesday, November 7. The link may be found on our Wea Ridge Run Club Facebook site. Also, all WRRC members should sign up for the Remind app so that we can contact you efficiently.


Second Grade Visitors


Last Wednesday, School Resource Officers Deputy Aaron Gilman and Deputy Rob Rush visited with the second grade classes. Deputy Gilman and Deputy Rush explained their jobs, the special tools on their belts, and their role in the community. They shared with us some rules about staying safe when we are walking around our community especially in the dark: use a flashlight or glow stick, look both ways when crossing the street, always stay with trusted adult and if you get lost never go inside someone's house.
We also learned that each day the police officers use their ears to listen to problems, their mouth to help solve problems and their brain to problem solve. When we see them at school, we know they are here to keep us safe. Thanks Deputy Gilman and Deputy Rush for visiting with us!




Daylight savings time ends on Sunday, November 4. Make sure to turn your clocks back one hour. Yay for an extra hour of sleep!

TSC Alerts & Notifications, buses with snow

Stay informed of weather delays and closings

Snow, fog and other conditions can cause a delay to the start of our school day. Make sure you are signed up for TSC alerts and notifications so you will be informed about a change in the regular school schedule.

Families can receive instant messages via email or text from the TSC through our website. Click on the "Parents" tab at the top and look for the link to "TSC Alerts & Notifications" with instructions on how to create an account. Make sure you are signed up for the "TSC alerts, delays and closings" option, not just for your school's news and alerts.

A delay or cancellation will also be posted on our websites. You will get a pop-up message as soon as you go to the TSC or any TSC school website.

TSC officials notify numerous media outlets if there has been a change to the regular school schedule. These media outlets include, but are not limited to, 105.3 FM-WKOA, 98.7 FM-WASK, WLFI-TV 18, 96.5 FM-WAZY, Journal & Courier and Indianapolis TV stations.

Several factors are considered when making the decision to delay or cancel school. They include road conditions, temperatures, the ability to safely operate buses and the condition of our buildings and parking lots. To learn more, check out the responses to these Frequently Asked Questions.

notes from the nurse with apple and nurse hat

Dear parents,


As we approach winter and flu season, we wanted to send a reminder with simple hints to help prevent the spread of illness.  You can reduce your child's chance of being infected or infecting others by:

·         washing hands often with soap and water

·         coughing and sneezing into crook of elbow or sleeve

·         cleansing hands after blowing nose

·         not touching your eyes, nose, or mouth

·         avoiding close contact with people who are sick

·         staying home when you are vomiting or have a fever

·         Not sharing drinks and food with other

Please share these tips with your children!  Thank you in advance for your assistance!


As a reminder, do not send medication to school with your student! 

Kim Buckley, RN

At this time, some of our playground equipment is not safe for our children to play on.  We have put warning signs up and have taped off the equipment.  The maintenance department is working to make the playground safe for the children.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
