Buffalo Weekly - August 26, 2020

ORIENTATION/OPEN HOUSE

Orientation/Open House is Monday, August 31, from 8 until 12 noon. This event is not just for new families – it’s for ALL families. This school year will begin differently than in the past, and Orientation/Open House provides the perfect place for you to learn more about what that will look like. The event will be hands-on, with opportunities for you to complete PowerSchool and Canvas tutorials. (Please bring your device in order to participate in tutorials.) Plus, at Orientation/Open House, you can…

  • Visit classrooms
  • Meet the teachers and principals both in-person and virtually
  • Connect with other WYIS families
  • Complete essential steps for registration, finance, uniform, busing, lunch, fingerprinting, ID cards, etc

NOTE: If you're away from campus and can't attend in person, we will also have Orientation/Open House information available on our website soon. Our goal is for ALL our students to start the school year well. We have each of you in mind and are working on providing a great start for every student, whether on campus or online.

(Please bring your completed forms with you to Orientation/Open House -- health pass, promise certificate, and negative nucleic acid test.)

REQUIREMENTS FOR DAY 1 ON CAMPUS

NOTE: Our website info was updated August 22 with new info about the nucleic acid test.

Students need 3 things before they can enter campus: health pass, promise certificate, and negative nucleic acid test. All requirements to begin school/enter campus can be found on our website HERE. Our website has this info, as well as frequently asked questions and other details. Check the site regularly to stay updated.
