Dear Members of the Wilson Community,
On behalf of the Wilson School District, allow me to be the first to say “welcome” to the 2018-2019 school year! Whether you are a returning family or are new to the area, we are pleased that you are part of the Wilson family. We are all very excited to embark on another opportunity to succeed in our mission to “empower our students to create their own future.”
I hope that all of you had the opportunity to relax and rejuvenate throughout the summer months. Personally, I enjoyed the opportunity to spend time with my family and do some travelling. I especially enjoyed going to Virginia, where I had the opportunity to attend some amazing music festivals and play my guitar with some great musicians and friends!
We have also been hard at work this summer preparing for the return of our students and professional staff. Our buildings have been cleaned and updated, we have held professional development workshops and trained our entire team in the ALICE (alert, lockdown, inform, counter, evacuate) active shooter protocol, which is one more initiative to enhance the safety and security of our schools.
I want to take this opportunity to remind families to ensure their Student Update is complete in our Skyward system prior to the start of school. If you haven’t completed this update yet, you can watch this screencast, which will walk you through the process. We are also pleased that our District Transportation Department now offers families a way to find information about their child’s District-provided transportation using the online InfoFinder i system. I also encourage you to visit our website frequently to stay up-to-date on District news and events and follow us on twitter @WilsonSchlDist and like us on facebook @WilsonSchoolDistrict.
On behalf of the incredible team of educators and staff at the Wilson School District, thank you for putting your trust in us to provide your children with a world-class education. We look forward to working with you throughout the school year to ensure the success of all of our students. We’ll see you on August 27th!
Dr. Richard H. Faidley, Superintendent
