Communication 411

Welcome back! We hope you had a great summer! It was a busy one in the district and our staff is excited to see their students again. A special welcome to those families new to our district this year.

As we start out the school year, we want to give you an overview of all the ways to stay informed — whether it be from your school or the district.


Each school in the district has a school newsletter. Keep an eye on your email to receive notices of newsletters and daily announcements. To ensure you are getting these emails, you must submit your email address to your building to be entered into Infinite Campus. Printed copies of school newsletters are sent home at most elementary schools. If you do not get a printed copy and would like one sent home with your elementary student, please contact your school office.

This newsletter, the Informaline, is emailed to all parents in the district the Monday after each school board meeting. A printed version is also sent home at the elementary buildings who do printed newsletters. In each issue you will find:

  • Board Highlights
  • from the most recent school board meeting
  • A list of new community flyers that have been added to the Virtual Backpack
  • A feature article that has been In the News that recaps a recent news story


The district, as well as each school in the district, has its own facebook page. Like us at these links:

Follow the district on Twitter @WDMCS and get scores and game updates from @VHSTigers. Updates on technology in the district from @WDMTech and Community Education highlights from @WDMCSComEd. Check with your teacher, because they may be on Twitter, too!
