Newsletters:  Newsletters will be sent home via email ONLY.  We are happy to send a paper copy if you do not have internet access at home. A notice has been sent home providing you with the opportunity to indicate how you would like to receive notices. We will continue to follow these instructions this year. If you wish to receive notices a different way (electronic copy only; paper copy only; or paper and electronic), please contact the office or send a note with your child.

 

Please refer to the WFDS Parent/Student Handbook for information on school procedures, playground guidelines, etc. There is also a link on this website under the Student/Parent Page. 

 

WFDS is a “nut smart” school.  We have students with severe allergies to nuts. Therefore we ask that you not send products containing nuts to school.  If you use “wow” butter or other replacements, help us avoid the confusion by sending a note in the lunchbox indicating that it is a nut-free product.  THANK YOU!
