Dear Parents, Students, Staff, and Partners:
Welcome back! We hope you had an enjoyable and restful summer. We are excited about the start of the 2021-22 school year. Embedded in the mission of Whispering Pines School is a continued focus on academic and social/emotional learning. Our staff remains dedicated to school-wide instructional practices that enhance self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. We are proud of the academic achievements our students made throughout the last year and look forward to continued growth. As always, we seek to create a welcoming, participatory and caring climate for learning through collaboration with families, community members, and stakeholders.
As you arrive for meetings, early pick up of your student, etc., please allow an extra few minutes due to the increased security measures. The front gate will be open and monitored by the school security specialist during drop-off and dismissal times. During the school day, this gate will remain locked. People wishing to enter the school during these times will need to call the phone number posted outside of the gate. At this time, a security team member will meet the visitor at the gate. Our single point of entry is now fully functioning; signs will alert you to this entrance. Please have your photo identification available to present to staff at this point.
My door is always open to parents, teachers, students, and staff. If you have a question, I will do my best to find the correct answer. Thank you, in advance, for your support this year. Your support also allows us to be focused directly on instruction and helping our students meet with success.
