From the Principal

Hello Wonderland Families,

As you may have heard, yesterday’s negotiations have reached an impasse. It appears a strike will commence on the morning of January 14th.  Below you will find information on school topics related to a strike on Monday, January 14th.

The school will be open during a strike

The school will be a safe place and there will be classes; a plan is in place. Classes will be staffed by instructors from the central and local district offices. Classes will rotate and students will have three different classes each day for three days. Please understand that due to some unforeseen variables, student attendance for example, changes to this structure may occur.  

Employees from the District

Employees from the local and central office have been deployed to Wonderland Avenue to help with both instruction and supervision. 

Parent Volunteers

Currently, a plan is in place with the instructors who are planning to work at Wonderland. I do not anticipate asking parents to volunteer.

Magnet Bus Transportation

All magnet buses will be running as usual, regardless of a strike.

School Meals

School meals will continue to be served.

STAR

STAR will be open and operating. Classes will run at their normally scheduled times. If you would like your child to attend STAR, but they did not come to school during the day, you will need to walk your child into school and sign them into the STAR program.

Beyond the Bell

Beyond the Bell after school care will be open and operating in the event of a teacher’s strike. However, unlike STAR, your child MUST attend during the school day to participate in the after school Beyond the Bell program. Again, Beyond the Bell WILL NOT accept your child if they did not attend school during the day.  

If your child will attend school during the strike, please meet in the MPR on the morning of Monday, January 14th for information and directions.

As always, feel free to email me with questions or concerns.

Have a restful weekend,

Principal Teer
