Dear Wagner-Holt Parents and Guardians: 

Welcome Back to the 2021-2022 School Year! Our ORCA Opening - 1st day of school - will be on Monday, August 2nd, for K-6 students and Wednesday, August 4th, for PK-SDC students. Our 1st minimum day is on Wednesday, August 11th. Breakfast begins at 7:40 a.m. Meals are free to all students. Our 3 gates open at 7:55 a.m. Students will need to bring their charged chromebooks and chargers to school. Students will walk directly to the blacktop and line up by class on dots to meet their teachers. Teachers will communicate directly with you about class placements by this Friday, July 30th. After school, students will exit through 4 gates.

Our campus safety expectations are enclosed with this letter for you to review with your child(ren). Masks are required indoors and at the gate upon arrival as students will immediately report to class. Masks will be on hand for students who come to school without one. 

As we prepare for our ORCA Opening, it’s important to complete the Aeries Parent Data Confirmation in the Aeries Parent Portal to review school information, update phone/email addresses, and update medical information. You will be asked questions about your income for school funding. It is easy and simple, and will take you less than 5 minutes to complete. If you have any questions or need assistance, please email or call our office at 209-953-8407.

Since your child(ren) will continue using a chromebook, we highly encourage you to purchase insurance called the Chromebook Care Plan for the chromebook at $25/year. This plan will cover accidental damage or theft. The plan is a great value considering the full replacement cost is $310.
