posted Feb 28, 2018, 8:42 AM by Nickie King   [ updated Sep 10, 2018, 10:42 AM ]

It's BOOK FAIR time!  The Scholastic Book Fair is the Library's fundraiser and it pays for lots of the "extras" that benefit all our students.  Come join the fun. Parents and family are welcome anytime during the school day. Doors open to parents at 7:30 am.  You may send cash or checks made out to "WES".  The Book Fair will close at NOON on Friday, September 21st.  **Parents may use credit cards** 

Parents may also set up an "ewallet" account where they can add money to spend during the book fair instead of sending in money into the school.  The attached link contains all the directions & information needed.

Attendance & Excuses

posted May 15, 2017, 5:49 AM by Nickie King   [ updated Feb 28, 2018, 11:07 AM ]

Per the SCDE, a pupil is counted absent if he/she is not present for greater than 50% of the school day.  The actual calculation (done automatically by PowerSchool) is based on the minutes covered in a school's bell schedule.

A student who misses school must present a written excuse within three (3) days after the student returns to school.  If your child was absent but did not go to the doctor, we still need a written excuse signed by a parent/legal guardian, stating why the child was absent.  

Make sure the excuse contains the following information:
    *    date(s) student was absent
    *    student's first and last name
    *    teacher's name

The requirements also apply to tardies and early dismissals.

The School District of Oconee County has implemented a new background check system.  Background Information Bureau (BIB) provides a more detailed report that a volunteer can complete themselves without giving out their personal information to the school.  The cost for the background check is $19.45.  A credit or debit card must be used to pay the fee online.  You will receive a copy of your background check by email and within two weeks, a card in the mail. The background check will be good for two years.  The school will receive notification of the background as well.  THIS IS THE ONLY BACKGROUND CHECK THAT WILL BE ACCEPTED.
