January News and Notes

Good Evening Wolf Swamp Families,
Half Day This Friday 1/27/17
As a reminder, this Friday January 27, 2017 students will be dismissed at 11:30 AM so that staff can attend Professional Development.  All staff will be leaving Wolf Swamp Road School immediately following dismissal to make their way to our workshop, so it is imperative to make proper arrangements to pick up your child at Wolf Swamp Road School by 11:30.
As a reminder, our preschool dismisses 10-15 minutes before our K-5 students.   Should you arrive more than 15 minutes early to the live line, we are asking that the preschool parents, which are limited in numbers, gain access to the front of the live line.  We will continue to ask parents or guardians of students in K-5 to stop just before the doors located by the cafeteria entrance.   Individuals picking up a preschool student will bypass the line of those waiting for a student in K-5 and go right to the front of the school.

Wolf Swamp Road School is currently looking for a lunch monitor.  We are looking for someone who is available to work Monday- Friday 11:15am -1:00pm.  If you are interested please apply online.  http://www.longmeadow.k12.ma.us/employment
