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.”

To submit pics:

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.

Zero Waste Lunch Results

Here are the Zero Waste Lunch (ZWL) numbers you’ve been waiting for! On Thursday, our students sent 13% less lunch trash to landfill (7 pounds) than they did on a day when they didn’t think as much about what they throw away!!! They also did a good job dumping liquids out before recycling! Good work! We’d like your help in keeping our students thinking about what they throw out, what they recycle and what they compost! Every bit helps. Our last ZWL of the year will be on April 16th in celebration of Earth Day. Let’s set a record! Thank you for all of your efforts to make Wyoming Schools greener!

A message for Parents and Guardians of 4th Grade Students

Wyoming fourth grade students annually participate in the TerraNova Standardized Achievement Assessment. This nationally normed assessment is used for gifted identification purposes. In order to help your child put testing in perspective, remind him/her that this “yearly check-up” highlights his/her overall strengths. The Wyoming Primary staff wants every student to perform at his/her highest level.

Testing Dates: Wednesday, March 4 and Thursday, March 5

Parents, please help your child by doing the following:

  • Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep.
  • Be certain your child eats a healthy, well-balanced breakfast.
  • Have your child to school by 8:30 a.m.
  • Please try to avoid scheduling appointments for your child on testing days between 8:30 a.m. and noon.
  • Contact your child’s teacher as soon as possible if you know about an absence ahead of time.

If you have questions about testing, please contact your child’s teacher. We thank you for your continued support and partnership as we work together to maximize learning for your child.
Sincerely,

Mrs. LaDora Hill

Principal

Primary News 2/7/2020

Hello Primary Families,

With cold and flu season in full swing, it is a good time to review the Wyoming School District’s medication policy. All medications (prescription and over-the-counter) administered at school must have a written order from a physician. This includes medications such as cough drops, antacids, lip balm, and topical ointments or creams.

In addition to a written order from a physician, all medication must be in the original container in which it was dispensed by the pharmacist. Over-the-counter medication should be labeled with your child’s name on the package.

If your child needs medication during the school day, please have the physician complete the medication consent form, which can be found on the Wyoming School District’s website or may be picked up at your child’s school office. Please contact your school’s health specialist of clinic aide if you have questions or if you would like to discuss specifics about your child’s medication.

Sincerely,

Nicole Murphy, RN, BSN

District Nurse

An attendance form was included with the Intra-District Open Enrollment letter in your child’s backpack today. If you plan to attend the meeting, please complete the form and return it to your child’s teacher by Monday, Feb. 10.

PRIMARY NEWS 12/20/2019

Hello Primary Families,

With winter break upon us, I’d like to wish you all happy holidays and let you know about some changes coming to the front office staff of our primary schools.

Wyoming Primary Schools Principal’s Administrative Assistant and Vermont School Building Administrative Assistant Colleen Bell is retiring. We want to thank Colleen for all that she has done for the Wyoming City Schools community in the many staff roles she’s filled over the past 28 years! Colleen’s last day is tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 20. We wish her well, but will dearly miss our daily access to her warmth, generosity and kindness.

In the new year, Hilltop School Building Administrative Assistant and Nurse Aide Jenni Burgess will become the Vermont School Building Administrative Assistant. Jenni has worked in Wyoming schools for 20 years and she’s looking forward to building relationships with Vermont School students, families and staff!

We are also excited to congratulate Hilltop School Administrative Assistant Holly McDaniels as she becomes the Primary Schools Principal’s Administrative Assistant! Prior to coming on staff this semester, Holly worked as a substitute administrative assistant in Wyoming and Princeton City Schools.

We look forward to welcoming a new part-time administrative assistant to Hilltop School and new clinic aides to Hilltop and Elm School in the second semester. I will share information about those new staff members when details are finalized. I look forward to building and enhancing relationships during our continued work together as we welcome new members to Team Primary!

Enjoy this time with friends and families while cherishing the life long memories,

LaDora Hill

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.

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.

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…
