PICTURE DAY

Picture Day will be after October Break on Thursday and Friday, October 13 and 14, 2022. Individual student photos will be on Thursday. Group photos (classroom, advisory, etc) will be on Friday.

Students must wear their uniform polo for all photos - white and green are both okay to wear. If it is PE day, students must bring their polo uniform to change into for the photo.

NO PARKING OUTSIDE FRENCH SCHOOL

When dropping off or picking up your kids each day, please keep in mind our French neighbors next door and do NOT park outside their lobby or school building. Please drive around to the WYIS side and park in our parking lot. The EFIW (French School) students and staff need a safe passage to and from their building, just like our families do. Thank you for showing respect and consideration to our French neighbors by not parking in front of their lobby or building.

SCHOOL BUS PARKING ZONE

For the safety of our bus riders and to ensure smooth driving and parking on campus, we have a painted school bus parking zone on our driveway. The area is marked on the ground near the lobby, and it is only for school bus parking during school days. Please don’t park your cars in the school bus parking zone between 7:30 AM and 5:00 PM. All cars must park in the parking lot.

MAP TESTING

WYIS continues MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) testing this week. We conduct MAP tests regularly throughout the year, which allows us to track students’ growth each time they test. To learn more about MAP, please read HERE or contact your child’s teacher.
