Parents- Effective February 3, 2014 There will be a new district start time for all schools.  The new start time will be 8:16am.  Please make the necessary changes to your schedule to make sure that your child is at school before 8:16am.  Anyone that comes in after 8:16am will be counted tardy.  (This will not change any bus pick up times or the end of the school day time.) This change is to help make sure that all schools are starting and ending at the same time.  Thank you again for all of your support and dedication to help make WMES a GREAT school.

*Students will be able to come into the building at the same time in the morning as in the past:  7:30 a.m.
