The Wood River Community Learning Center (After School Program) will be at Wood River Elementary, beginning this year, for students in grades K-5. The program will have a few similarities, but the focus will be experience and literacy based. Currently, partnerships with Rowe Sanctuary, the National Guard, Hall County Extension Office, and the Grand Island Library will have students connect their field trips and experiences to their learning. The Grand Island Library will also provide programs for Learning Community students and families, to help infuse literacy activities. Full time program students and family members will be able to check out books from the Grand Island Library, with their FREE library card! Students will also be getting homework assistance, organized physical activities, and nutritious snacks. Click here to register your student(s).
Starting with the 2015 – 2016 school year, we are changing the availability of Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and Ibuprofen (Advil/Motrin). We will no longer have these medications at the school for student use. If your child is in need of these over-the-counter pain meds, you will need to send the medication in the original bottle with your child’s name printed on it. You will also need to download off of the school website or get from the school, a medication release form. This form needs to be signed by you, dated and returned to the school before any medication can be given. If you have any questions, please call Kim Woitaszewski R.N. School Nurse. Click here for the medication release form.
