Our WHS Student Circle Keepers class has been hard at work to create a parent event for 8th - 12th grade parents.

We would love to see all of you there! January 16th at 6:30 PM, in the WHS theater. Topics include: Vaping, Drugs and Alcohol Staying Connected To Your Teen Transition to High School Stress and Anxiety Boundaries Screen Time
New PSPS for November 19 NO POWER SHUTOFFS FOR WUSD - ALL SCHOOLS SCHEDULED TO REMAIN OPEN Hello (School or Windsor Unified School District) Families and Staff Members, This is an important message to let you know that PG & E is advising us of a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event in Sonoma County, beginning tomorrow, November 20.. At this time, WIndsor schools and departments are NOT listed as having any power shutoffs and all Windsor schools and departments will remain OPEN. We will let you know as soon as reasonably possible if we receive information indicating any changes. Thank you for your patience. NO HAY CORTE DE ENERGÍA ANUNCIADA PARA WUSD: TODAS LAS ESCUELAS PROGRAMADAS PARA PERMANECER ABIERTAS Hola (Familia o Distrito Escolar Unificado de Windsor) Familias y miembros del personal, Este es un mensaje importante para hacerle saber que PG&E nos está informando sobre un evento de corte de energía pública (PSPS) en el condado de Sonoma, que comenzará mañana, 20 de noviembre. En este momento, las escuelas y departamentos de WIndsor NO están listados como cualquier apagón y todas las escuelas y departamentos de Windsor permanecerán ABIERTOS. Le informaremos tan pronto como sea razonablemente posible si recibimos información que indique algún cambio. Gracias por su paciencia.
The following PSPS message shows up for all WUSD schools and facilities and has been verified directly with our PG&E representative: No Impact: This location is NOT currently expected to be impacted by a Public Safety Power Shutoff, though surrounding areas may be. By providing your specific address information in this tool, you are getting a more accurate view than the PSPS area map. If we expect this address to be impacted, we will attempt to call, text or email by using the phone number or email address currently on file. NO anticipation of a PSPS for WUSD and therefore no anticipation of closing schools. If information changes (we have no control over this), updates will be provided as soon as reasonably possible. It is important to know, as well, that PG&E has recently communicated that they may not have PSPS information about planned outages until a time closer to a necessary PSPS event (meaning that there is a possiblity for notices of a power shutoff to go out within hours of an event). We have reasonable assurance, at this current time/PSPS event, that we should not be impacted.
WMS: Science Camp information went home this week for 6th grade students. Please take a moment and fill out the information. Online payments can be made here: https://bit.ly/2poGsfC

WMS: Friday is Costume Day for Spirit Week. Come to school wearing your costume. No masks and no weapons. Face makeup is ok.
Windsor's First Responders arrived with Welcome Posters at WMS. Students responded in kind by making a banner to express their thanks and love for the brave men and women that saved their school and our town.
Students start their day at WMS thanking our Fire Chief and Battalion Chief for keeping them safe.
Windsor Firefighters and Police Officers join Principal Williams, Assistant Principal Ballard, and the Superintendent with banners and thank you signs to welcome our students back to school. WMS thanks all First Responders for taking such good care of us! Who knows you may get a glimpse of this on KRON 4 today!
