Dear WPS Community:

Vaccine Clinic for Ages 5-11

Over the past two weeks we held two vaccine clinics for ages 5-11 (grades K-6).  Both clinics were well attended with approximately 180 students receiving their first vaccination.

COVID-19 Pool Testing

COVID-19 pool testing in grades K-6 continues.  We have approximately 135 students participating in this voluntary program.

  • If you did not enroll but now want your child to participate, send an email to the school nurse in your building.
  • If you are enrolled and no longer want your child to participate, send an email to the school nurse in your building.

Kindly direct any questions about the program to the COVID-19 liaison in your school; HES – Matthew Paylor (matthewpaylor@westonps.org), WIS – Nicole Wilhelm (nicolewilhelm@westonps.org), or WMS – Dru Walters (druwalters@westonps.org).

As always, we appreciate everyone’s collective efforts to keep as many students and staff as possible in school.

Sincerely,

Lisa Wolak

Superintendent of Schools
