Important Bus Information

It is important at the end of the day that someone is at the bus stop to receive their student(s) as they get off the bus.  For safety reasons, our bus drivers will not release students from the bus without an adult (parent, grandparent, babysitter or older brother and sister) present. If no one is available to get your child, they will be returned to the school.  This could lead to your child losing bus priviledges for several days or the entire school year.   Thank you for your understanding as safety is our top priority in the district.

Elementary Schools Information

Honoring Superstar Effort!

IMG_4648Great things continue to happen at Whipple Heights Elementary School.  The most recent being the posting of Mr. Hug’s Final Round Principal Showcase for the 2017-2018 school year.  The Principal Showcase is a bulletin board (located in the main hallway across from the office) where every four to five weeks teachers submit student work for recognition and display based on student effort.   Each time the board is changed we recognize these students on our website/social media. Additionally, when it’s time to change the board students receive a small token from Mr. Hug to reinforce his pride and excitement in their display of hard work. (more…)
