Wea Ridge to host Kindergarten Roundup


Wea Ridge Elementary School will host Kindergarten Roundup for the 2019-2020 school year from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm, Wednesday, April 10.

Parents/guardians enrolling an incoming kindergarten student must contact the school at 765-471-9321 as soon as possible to begin the registration process.

Families need to provide the school office with the child's official birth certificate or current passport (no photo copies, hospital certificates or baptismal certificates will be accepted), immunization record and proof of residency. All documents need to be received in the office prior to April 2. Please contact the school if you have any questions or concerns.

Children must be five years of age on or before August 1, 2019 to be eligible for enrollment in kindergarten. If a parent feels the child is not emotionally mature enough for exposure to the school environment, the family may wait a year before enrolling.

STUDENT PLACEMENT REQUEST:

 

Dear Parent or Guardian, 

 

We are often asked if a parent can submit a teacher request on behalf of their student.  If you would like to make a request for the 2019-2020 school year, please fill out the google sheet via the blue button below or print out the attached document, complete and return to the school.  All request are required in writing or the Google Form and must be sent to the school's office no later than April 12, 2019.   Keep in mind that the request does not guarantee placement.

ILEARN

 

All WEA 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will be taking a new assessment called the ILEARN this school year. This assessment will be replacing  ISTEP. The test will be given during one window in late April and early May and is the basis for our school's letter grade. Please read more about this test by clicking on the link below.

If your child has chapped lips, please send chapstick with them.  Students can keep chapstick with them throughout the day!

 

Students with vomiting, diarrhea, undiagnosed skin rashes, eye drainage or fever over 100 degrees should not attend school.  Students exhibiting these symptoms at school will be sent home.

 

With vomiting and diarrhea, the school nurse will evaluate any associated circumstances and other symptoms before making an exclusion decision.  Children vomit for reasons other than illness, including coughing, stress, exertion, reflux and food intolerance.

 

Students with vomiting, diarrhea, or fever over 100 should not return to school until the symptoms have resolved without medication for 24 hours.

 

Students with pink eye may return to school with a doctor's note.  Skin rashes should be reported to your school nurse.  Students with diagnosed skin rashes should present medical documentation from a physician to the health office.

 

Please remember with all of these exclusion criteria that our job is to facilitate students remaining in school.  Our goal is to have the child miss as little class time as possible!

 

Please take a few minutes to review the TSC Wellness Policy. Outlined in the policy are goals set by the TSC board in an effort to enable students to establish good health and nutrition habits.

Continued CAUTION! 

 

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.

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.
