Parent and Student Handbook
Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome to John Wayland Elementary School! We are pleased that you are a part of our school community. This school year will be filled with many exciting opportunities for learning for your child(ren).
Please take time to read our school Mission Statement on page 3 – what we strive to do for each individual child. We embrace this challenge, and we must try to achieve our mission in cooperation with you – the parent. You are your child’s first and most important teacher.
This student handbook is being made available to make you aware of the local policies and procedures for our school. Although we will go over many of the policies in the classroom, we recommend that you take time to read through the handbook and review the appropriate sections together as a family. Please do not hesitate to contact one of us if you have any questions or concerns (828-6081). A paper copy of this JWES handbook is available upon request (for those who prefer paper rather than electronic copies).
This local school parent-student handbook should be referred to along with the Rockingham County Public Schools 2016-2017 Parent-Student Handbook, the newsprint booklet which you are receiving in your packet (and which we ask that you take time to review). Please sign and return the form in your packet that indicates that you have received the handbooks.
If there is anything we can do to assist you during this school year, please contact us.
Karen Ridder, Principal
Alexandra Johnston, Assistant Principal
