  • WFPS Elementary Attendance in the Hybrid Learning Model

    • Student “Synchronous” On-Site Attendance: Taken by school for the 2 days the student is in school. Please follow standard protocol and call the office to report any absence and reason why.
    • Student “Asynchronous” Off-Site Attendance: Taken once a week and recorded on Wednesday. Attendance is based on the student making a “reasonable” attempt to complete the off-site assigned work.
    • What is determined a “reasonable” attempt will be at the professional discretion of the teacher.
    • Class meetings taking place on Wednesdays are encouraged for all students but will not be considered for attendance purposes. Teachers will record these meetings to be viewed later if students are unable to attend online through Microsoft Teams at the designated time.

  • FREE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH

    The USDA has announced a new waiver that will allow WFPS to serve FREE MEALS TO ALL STUDENTS through December 2020. This waiver applies to every student, every day (onsite learning days, offsite learning days, and Virtual Program participants). The waiver takes effect immediately. Funds that have been placed in your student’s account will remain there for use starting in January 2021 once the waiver expires. The WFPS Food Service Department and district is excited for this opportunity to provide free meals to our students and support our families during the pandemic. All menus meet or exceed USDA guidelines, with age-appropriate meal patterns based on the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Meals are prepared and served in compliance with federal, state and local regulations.

     

    MEALS FOR DISTANCE LEARNING DAYS

    If you would like to preorder meals for the three days per week that your student is learning online, complete the form by each Wednesday by 5:00PM for the students in the Monday-Tuesday group and each Monday by 5:00PM for the students in the Thursday-Friday group. The bag will contain three breakfasts and three lunches; no partial orders are accepted.

  • FRESH FRUIT AND VEGETABLE PROGRAM 

    Deer Creek is lucky enough to be part of the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP).  The FFVP provides all children in participating schools with a variety of free fresh fruits and vegetables during the school day at times other than breakfast or lunch. It is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and vegetables as healthy snack options.

    The goal of the FFVP is to improve children’s overall diet and create healthier eating habits to impact their present and future health. The FFVP will help schools create healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices, expanding the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience, and increasing children’s fruit and vegetable consumption.

  • STUDENTS NEED WATER BOTTLES

    Each student should bring a water bottle to school every day. Due to the pandemic, our drinking fountains are not accessible. There is a water dispenser that students can use to fill their bottle. Please do not send any other drink to school in the water bottle.
