Ready, Set, Go! Conferences

Greetings, WUSD Elementary Families -  

With Summer School officially complete, it is time to think ahead to the 2021-2022 school year! We are so proud of our whole community for coming together and persevering through a year like no other this past school year. We look forward to launching the new school year together and have a few updates for our WUSD elementary families.

Ready, Set, Go! Conferences 
Who: WUSD Elementary Students & Parents/Guardians  

When: September 1st-3rd (Sign-up begins Monday, August 16th on Skyward) 

Due to the successful implementation of Ready, Set, Go! Conferences this past fall, we will again be launching the school year in this way. Starting on August 16th, 4K-5th Grade parents/guardians attending our WUSD elementary schools will be able to sign up in Skyward for one-on-one conferences with our WUSD elementary classroom teachers. During your child’s 45-minute conference time, parents/guardians and student will be able to meet your child’s teacher, learn classroom routines and expectations, bring in school supplies, discuss individual strengths and areas for growth, connect with parent communication tools, take school tours, and more! Daytime and evening timeslots will be available, and parents/guardians are welcome to schedule conferences for multiple children at the same time if they would prefer. Ready, Set, Go! Conferences will be held from September, 1st-3rd, with all students then reporting to school for their first day of classes on Tuesday, September 7th! 

Please note: 
  • Traditional “open house” will not be held due to one-on-one Ready, Set, Go! Conferences. We look forward to seeing all of our families at Ready, Set, Go! Conferences to kick off the school year. - Due to the conferences being held during daytime and evening hours, students will not attend school (with the exception of their conference) on September 1st-3rd. All 4K-5th Grade WUSD students attending at our elementary schools will report to school for their first day of class on Tuesday, September 7th!
