When do I find out my child’s classroom teacher?                            

  • Please log in to your Parent Portal account on Sept 1, 2022 (after 1:00 PM) to find out your child’s homeroom classroom placement.


Demographic Update Form

  • Prior to the first day of school, typically by the last week of August, all WCPS parents are asked to go to the online Parent Portal account and complete a Demographic Update
  • WCPS parents must complete this form prior to the first day of classes. The form is mostly pre-populated with current data from PowerSchool. However, there are several essential consents parents/guardians must complete annually.

Please Note:  students will not be allowed to access any technology, will have limited access to physical education activities and will not be permitted to leave school grounds for activities until the Student Demographic Update Form is completed.


When are the school fees due?   

Student fees are due at the beginning of September each year.  

  • All fees must be paid online through the Parent Portal ("student fee" tab on the bottom left of the screen). 
    • Cash/cheque payments will not be accepted.  
    • Payment through mobile devices does not consistently work - please use a computer. - The office has one available for use if needed.

Please Note: all supplemental fees are required to be paid prior to optional items (paid lunches) or extra-curricular activities being available for purchase.


School Supplies

Grade level supply lists are detailed here.

We have partnered with School Start to offer a convenient option to families with kits available for purchase online and delivered directly to you.

  • $5/kit ordered before July 31, 2022 will come back to our school.
  • Purchasing items from School Start is completely optional, therefore families may buy school supplies anywhere you like.
  • If you choose to purchase supplies somewhere else, please use the grade level supply lists as the “school supply list”.  


New Students

  • During the online process, a Parent Portal account will be created automatically. Access will be granted once your child's application has been approved and processed.  
    • Your Parent Portal account is also used for paying student costs for many things including all required student fees, field trips, hot lunches, etc.
