New Directory Process

We have a new directory process.  Please refer to the information below and enter your information as soon as possible to help us streamline the process.  You will have the option for your information to be available online, in print, both, or neither.

We are collecting all family contact information online for the 2014-2015 school directory.  The directory will be available in the standard printed version as well as online via computer or smart phone.

All WUES families will enter their own directory information online

Go to the secure link and enter your family’s information.  Please note you will need to know the teacher’s name for each child.

Deadline to enter your family’s information is Friday, August 29, 2014.

This new system will reduce errors, make our printed directory publication process more efficient, and allow you to easily access the WUES directory via computer or smart phone.

Please contact Ranae Scheibner for more information.
