Parents & Guardians of incoming 6th grade students at WCMS,
WCMS has a closed school zone which is necessary to keep our class sizes manageable and to allow our students (who do live in our zone) more 1 on 1 time with our teachers. Only students who live inside the WCMS school zone may attend the 6th grade at WCMS, UNLESS the county school the student is zoned for cannot meet the students’ needs.
For the upcoming 2019-20 school year, all incoming 6th graders must verify that their permanent address is inside the WCMS zone. Proof of residency can be proven in 1 of 2 ways:
1. A utility or electric bill that is dated after June 1, 2019 OR
2. A lease agreement for a family who is renting their place of residency.
Living with a family member who lives inside the WCMS zone, but does not have legal guardianship of the student, will not allow a student to attend WCMS. Parents & guardians are asked to stop by the WCMS office between the dates of July 22nd – July 31st with the proper documentation to verify their permanent address is within the WCMS zone. Simply owning property in the WCMS school zone, without a residence on it, does not establish residency within our zone. The main office will be open 8 am – 2 pm each day. Students, who do not verify their address during these dates, will have to do so on registration night before they are allowed to attend the TEAM orientation meetings on August 1st.
If you have questions about an address being within the school zone or need to explain a special circumstance, you are asked to call Principal Gerald Tidwell at 473-6557.
Thank you in advance for your time and assistance with this registration matter.
