INCLEMENT SCHOOL CLOSING/DELAY
In case of inclement weather or other emergencies, parents should listen to the radio or
television or check the Wyoming City Schools website for announcements regarding the
operating status of Wyoming City Schools.
A delayed opening means that school will open later than usual at the discretion of the
Superintendent of schools.
A closing means that schools will not be in session that day.
On the delayed schedule, buses too will operate on a delay.
Families will receive an automated phone message from the superintendent. Please be
sure contact numbers are current.
One station has provided a means for superintendents to call directly to the station;
therefore, we suggest you listen to “WLW” 700 on the AM dial. This station will be called
directly with information regarding Wyoming Schools’ delay or closing.
Please note: That in the event of a School Delay the Before School Program (AM Session) will be cancelled…
Dress for the Weather… this is a reminder to please send your child to school dressed for the weather. We will have recess outside on cold days and it is important that your child have his/her coat, hat, and gloves.
LOST and FOUND Items
Please check for Lost & Found items at your child’s building.
- Reminder to label your child’s clothing items, backpack, lunch box, instuments,etc. This will facilitate the returning of items to the proper owner.

Yearbook picture submissions
Parent picture submissions are very important to make the yearbook successful. Thank you for your partnership!
Picture requirements: Unfortunately, pictures downloaded from Facebook or Instagram or sent through text are not large enough to print clearly in the yearbook. Pictures must be at least 1 MB in size. Additionally, many cellphone photos are not this size. Please adjust your photo camera settings, if possible. When sending or uploading photos, please choose “send full size image”.
2 ways to submit pics:
Pictures may be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the school name and a description of the content of the photo. The photo cannot be used without this information.
Pictures may also be uploaded to Shutterfly to this site address: https://wyomingprimaryschoolsyearbook.shutterfly.com/. Please place pictures in the appropriate folder. Please include the school name and a description of the content of the photo in the comments section. The photo cannot be used without this information.

4th grade farewell picture
Parents of 4th grade students are encouraged to send in a candid, current photo of their 4thgrader. This does not have to be at school. This photo can be from a vacation or fun activity but should be a picture in which the student’s face can clearly be seen. The photo must be at least 1 MB and when submitted (through the options explained above) must be accompanied with the student name, building and homeroom teacher’s name. Fourth grade farewell photos can be submitted 12/1/19-1/31/20.
Let’s keep publishing primary yearbooks!
The current yearbook coordinators are looking for volunteers to take over the task starting with the 2020-21 school year. One coordinator is needed for each primary building to help coordinate parent volunteers to take pictures during certain events, review class lists, and confirm student portraits are in the correct folders prior to yearbook placement. Estimated time commitment is about 10 hours September- March.
There is also a need for 5-6 people to assist digitally building the yearbook. Estimated time commitment is about 5-10 hours in March.
We are currently in need volunteers to take photos for parties. These would need to be yearbook photo volunteers who are not planning to serve as classroom party volunteers in any other capacity.
Training is offered for all positions. Please send an email to email@example.com if you are interested!
