  • The SOLs roll-on here at WMS — but they’re a little different today. MAKE-UP testing will be conducted in the Library following the Morning Announcements — with 8th graders making-up the World Geography exam, and ALL grade-levels making-up the Reading exam.  while the rest of the school will be following a NORMAL class schedule.  The rest of the school will be following a REGULAR class schedule.
    .
    Test-takers are reminded that you may ONLY bring the following items: your fully-charged iPad, a pencil or pen, a book to read, and earbuds ONLY if you have an approved audio accommodation for the test. You may NOT bring: backpacks or cinch sacks; any other electronic devices such as phones, watches, game consoles and the like; nor any water or snacks. And of course, there is zero tolerance for CHEATING.
    .
    And for all those students who are NOT testing today — please remember to be quiet and respectful when you’re passing by the Library. Teachers will be monitoring the hallways to ensure that there are no disruptions. Any other questions or concerns? Check with your teachers or grade level counselors. Good luck on your SOLs, wolves!
    .
  • The WMS Library will be CLOSED today during SOL testing hours. But it WILL be open after school. So be sure to stop by this afternoon and get yourself something good to read for after your SOL!

  • And now for a “Transportation Tip” about riding the LATE bus. If you’re ever planning to take the LATE BUS after school — you MUST have a signed bus pass for both ASP1 and 2. If you do not have a pass — you will NOT be allowed to ride the late bus. Again — the pass must be SIGNED for both ASP1 and 2 in order to ride the Late Bus. See you grade-level administrator with any questions.

  • And finally today: we need to talk — about VAPING. The Williamsburg Anti-Vaping Task Force is continuing its drive to confront the vaping epidemic HEAD-ON. Because kids need to know — vaping ain’t cool, you fool!!
