Wyandotte Elementary is participating in the U. S. Census Bureau's Statistics in Schools (SIS) program to unite schools around the country in an effort to count every child in the 2020 Census.
The national census is conducted every 10 years. Data from this census is used to determine funding for many programs including special education, classroom technology, teacher training, after-school programs, and school lunch assistance.
In mid-March, your family should begin receiving official Census 2020 mail with instructions on how to respond. By April 1, 2020, every home should receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You will have three options for responding:
Wyandotte Elementary urges every family to participate. More information can be found in our Peachjar E-Flyers area.

The district has earned the Speak Up District of Student Empowerment national distinction for our participation in the Speak Up Research Initiative. This initiative includes student, educator, parent, and community member participation in the nation-wide Speak Up survey, which was made available in October 2019. Speak Up results are used to inform federal, state, and local education programs. At the district level, initial survey results were used to identify and address local needs in the district's Long-Range Educational Technology Plan.
If you missed your first opportunity to contribute your thoughts to Speak Up, it's not too late. The survey links were reopened on February 1, 2020, and will remain open until May 1. You can find the link to the survey here: https://speakup.tomorrow.org/S/YMN3

As we begin this new semester, we have instituted a new policy for check-outs. Our ultimate goal is for the safety and security of all our students. We also want to alleviate any chaos or unnecessary disruptions to the school day. That said, we have new signs posted about our policy. This policy is not to cause you inconvenience, but to stop some of the problems we have been running into. I have included a picture of the sign so you can see it. We thank you in advance for helping us maintain order and security for all our children.
Welcome back to school and routines! It's always nice to get back to what we know. We are so excited about our new semester and the success it will bring. Thank you for trusting us to care for and teach your child. We are honored.
As we begin the new year, here are a couple of wonderful articles that may help you. Sometimes we get so caught up in life that we get overwhelmed and don't know where to turn. These articles can give you a few tips on how to manage. Be mindful that you may not agree with it all or you may say "right on." Just take the bits that you feel will help you to parent the best.
NOTE: We will offer 2 more Chaperone Classes for those that may not have been able to attend at the beginning of the school year. Remember, you may not chaperone a fielp trip, activity, or help in school if you have not attended a class. We do not require this to aggravate you or to put any hardship on you. We offer this so that we may put out students' best interest and safety first. Thank you for understanding.

REMINDER: Tutoring begins again on the 14th of January.
There are no Medicare sales representatives. Anyone who tried to sell you Medicare insurance is a scammer.
You do NOT have to join a prescription drug plan to keep your Medicare insurance. Medicare Part D is voluntary and has nothing to do with your regular Medicare coverage.
Telephone scammers posing as "official agents" may ask for personal information, offer free equipment or services, ask for a quick payment, or threaten you. Just hang up.
Help with Medicare is available at medicare.gov or 1-800-MEDICARE.
For Affordable Care Act:
Compare plans and quality ratings at healthcare.gov, where you can also enroll.
This year, you can also sign up for an ACA plan directly with certain certified partners. Make sure a company is on the Certified Partner list before giving them your information.
