How do I enroll my child at Wapiti?
We are thrilled to welcome new members to our community! Please visit our Registration page for the information about enrolling your child at one of our schools. You may also download and print a copy of the registration forms and bring the completed forms, together with the required documentation, to the main office of the school your child will attend.
What if my child requires medication during the school day?
We will administer medication in accordance with state regulations and with physician and parental approval. Please complete our medication authorization form, and bring medications in the original, labeled packaging to the front office.
Do you provide transportation services?
We are pleased to provide our students with safe, reliable transportation to and from school each day. We consider bus riding a privilege and expect all students to adhere to the rules for their own safety as well as for the safety of others. For information on bus policies, schedules, and routes, please visit our district Transportation page.
What is PowerSchool, and how do I get a username and password to use it?
PowerSchool is just another way we keep communication between home and school strong. It provides you with almost real time access to your child’s grades, attendance history, and other important information. To receive your login information, please give us a call.
What are the school hours?
8:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
What do I need to do if my child will be absent from school?
If your child must miss school, please call the school office on the day of his/her absence. For information about attendance requirements and what qualifies as an excused absence, please refer to our student handbook.
Do you enforce a dress code at Wapiti?
We expect our students to dress in an appropriate manner at all times. Student dress may not present a health or a safety hazard, violate municipal, county, or state law, or present a potential disruption of the educational process. Generally, we do not allow:
- Clothing that exposes any part of the wearer's midsection or underclothes or clothing that could be confused as underclothes (such as spandex, tank tops with less than three inches of sleeve, see-through or mesh clothing, etc.)
- Clothing with any logo, writing, symbols, or numbers that reflect violence, malicious behavior, offensive language, sexual innuendo, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or anything otherwise considered disruptive or gang related
- Non-prescription, dark glasses worn on the face or head, hats, caps, or other headgear unless designated for a specific purpose
- Students on school property or at any school activity to wear, possess, use, distribute, display, or sell any clothing, jewelry, bandana, emblem, badge, symbol, sign, or other item perceived as evidence of membership in or affiliation with a gang
How can I get more involved?
We strongly encourage your involvement. Please take the time to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher and let him or her know that you’re interested in getting involved. We also invite you to join PTO and make your voice heard. Parents can also support their child’s education in some basic ways, including:
- Encouraging your child to get plenty of sleep
- Offering a healthy diet, including a good breakfast (or getting your child to school early enough to eat breakfast in our cafeteria)
- Helping your child get up in plenty of time for school
- Providing neat, clean, comfortable clothes
