Student Agenda for 2018-2019
TO OUR STUDENTS AND PARENTS (Grades K-12)
Dear Parents and Students,
A strength of any school district is the joint effort of parents and staff to establish and maintain high expectations for all areas of student growth and development. To this end, we are pleased to provide you with a Wilson County Schools Student Handbook for the 2018-19 school year. This handbook is provided to help parents and students have useful information regarding policies and procedures of our district. Please take the time to review the handbook and help your student(s) understand the expectations and many supports available to them at their school.
Close communication between home and school supports the best interests of each student. We are committed, as a district, to providing our students with a safe, structured school environment and our parents with all of the support and information needed to ensure the success of our children. After reviewing the handbook with your student, feel free to contact us if have any questions or concerns. If you need additional information, please visit the district website at www.wcschools.com. The website contains additional information and links to individual school websites. We look forward to partnering with you to ensure that your child has a very successful school year. If I can be of any assistance to you and your family, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Dr. Donna Wright Director of Schools
