Hello Wellstone families,


Teachers and staff are looking forward to welcoming students back to school.  Grades 1-5  return on Thursday, September 9 and Kindergarten & PreK will start Monday, September 13.

Due to COVID we still have some restrictions for visitors. Parents are welcome in the building only to visit the office at this point.  This includes quick trips in the middle of the day such as to pick up a student for a medical appointment or dropping off forgotten items. For longer meetings with teachers or the principal please contact the office to schedule an appointment.  Masks are required at all times.  

***Important- Please make sure your child's teacher knows how they are getting home.

Both drop off in the morning and pick up in the afternoon will take place on Marion St.  There will be staff in the parking lot on Marion St  to facilitate drop off and pick up.  

If you will be picking your child up every day and they will never take the bus please complete this Pick up form.  Once this form is completed you do not need to call every day.  If you are only  picking your child up occasionally please call the attendance line and leave a message stating your child's name and grade by 12:30.
