New Start Time for the Fall
We want to inform parents that our school’s starting time will be changing slightly. Starting this fall, school will begin at 7:50 am, instead of 7:55 am, on Mondays through Thursdays. Friday’s start time will continue to be 9:50 am. While this is a slight change, we want you to know now so that you can adjust your schedule accordingly for this fall.
The Utah State Office of Education would like every parent of a WJMS student to take the Needs Assessment. This assessment is 25 questions that allows the State to determine how resources should be used in the future.
