2. Call in sick protocol

Is your child sick? Do you know who to contact at the school when they need to stay home? Let’s get this cleared up!

The best way to contact the school about your child being late or absent due to illness, or otherwise, is to email the front office (wcaoffice@wcavt.org) and copy your child’s homeroom teacher.

3. WCA Garment & Merch Store coming on time for Christmas!

We are working on a WCA online garments and merch storefront! We’re hoping to offer such items as tshirts, sweatshirts, joggers, and hats. The storefront will be opened and closed on time to get the orders in before Christmas! And with an online storefront, friends and family members from across the country and order merch for your kids attending WCA! More details will be coming soon!

4. Warrior Bakery store coming soon!

We are working on getting the Warrior Bakery back up and running! This time you will be able to submit your orders and pay online, then have your orders ready to be sent home on Friday! Have patience as we work on the details. We will get back to you with more information soon!
