Student IDs

In January 2020, Wakpala Public School implemented a Student ID system. Student IDs help strengthen accountability and safety by ensuring students get on their assigned bus and are arriving at their assigned bus drop-off location at the end of the day. We have seen a recurring issue recently of students not having their ID when they board the bus in the morning. Please help ensure your child has their ID when they leave the house. If an ID has been lost or damaged, another can be obtained by stopping by the front office. Thank you for your help.

21st Century Program

The 21st Century Program is up & running. We've had great participation so far!
We wanted to remind everyone that students who are signed up for the afterschool program will be kept at school unless a parent/ guardian has called the school no later than 3:00. This is so parents and teachers both know where students should be going. Students who have behavior problems during the school day and are written up will not be allowed to stay for the afterschool program. Parents will be notified of this and students will ride home on the bus at 3:30.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
