Communication is KEY!
  • Benefits to connecting parents:

    ✓ Parents in the know are able to provide better support at home

    ✓ Sharing moments from school fosters a sense of community

    ✓ Messaging directly (in 50+ languages) break communication barriers

Parent Communication

  • Dear Woodland Parents and Guardians,

    As both an educator and a parent I recognize and value the importance of timely information from schools. In an effort to better communicate school news and updates with parents I have signed up with Remind.  This free service allows educators to send text “blasts” to all subscribers. Simply follow the directions below and you will automatically receive any messages I send to the WES community. This is a closed system. We will not have access to each other's cell phone numbers. You will not be able to text back. My hope is to use the service to give updates and reminders regarding delayed openings, school schedule changes, report card distribution dates, conference dates, and important community events. It is my sincere desire that this tool will make it easier for you to do all the many things that are demanded of you as a parent and yet still keep you connected and up-to-date with WESl. Please email me with any questions or feedback to 

    Directions to sign up for Reminder Blasts: STEP 1 -  Just text @wessalter to 81010.  STEP 2 - Reply to the message from the Remind team with your first and last name, and you’re in!.  Once you text @wessalter to that number you will receive confirmation that you are now subscribed. It’s that easy.
