Please help your child’s teacher by providing him or her with clear directions for leaving school when there are changes to the normal routine. The easiest way to make sure that your child arrives home safety and on time is with a written note or email.
We ask that you keep your mode of transportation home as consistent as possible. We understand that changes do happen and we ask that they be called in to the office prior to 3:00pm. After that time it can be very difficult to reach teachers as they have many responsibilities at the end of the day.
Carpool families please utilize the entrance of the school near the media center for both the am and pm times. The bus loop should never be used to drop or pick up students during carpool times. Also, students should never be dropped off near the cafeteria to walk down the fire lane. This drop-off location is only used by our Special Transportation providers and preschool families and no other cars should drive down this lane.
Carpool students may be dropped off no sooner that 8:45am and should be in their classroom no later than 9:15am. If you and your child arrive after 9:15am, the student will need to be signed into the office by an adult. Carpool ends at approximately 4:10pm every day. If you arrive after this time you will need to come into the office and sign your child out. If families are consistently arriving late, a letter from the office is sent home and families are encouraged to sign up for an after-school program.
Please refer to our WES Handbook found here for a complete list of procedures.
Please make plans to join us for Weatherstone’s 4th Annual STEM Expo, Saturday, April 16th from 10:00AM – 2:00PM. This will be a fun-filled day to explore Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) through fun and educational activities. They will be designed around STEM based themes with interactive exhibits with our WES staff and local organizations. We will also have food trucks, raffle baskets, and a silent auction.

April Spotlight Volunteer - Carin Scott
by Tanya West
Carin started her volunteering journey at WES almost two years ago when her son asked her to help his teacher with Tuesday folders. Carin has a 5th grader and 2nd grader at WES and a 7th grader at DDMS. This year, Carin is the room parent for Mrs. Kazanjian’s class and also works in her classroom during math sessions. Carin volunteers at the school store every Thursday and Friday. Carin also volunteered at the book fair and tries to participate in as many classroom learning activities as she can.
Carin says, “Volunteering at WES is important to me because in addition to supporting our students, teachers, and administrators, I am supporting my children’s interests as well.”
Thank you, Carin, for all your hard work and dedication at WES!
